Initiatives at the PACF

The PACF takes a strategic approach to identify where it can make the greatest impact for our communities. 

To help further our initiatives that address some of the Mid-Ohio Valley's toughest challenges, the PACF acts as a resource, partner, funder or convener, to collaborate with leaders from nonprofits, government and the community to create durable, positive change across the region.

  • Civic Leaders Fellowship Program:  Provides summer employment opportunities and a program of civic leadership development for college students who reside in the PACF's service area.
  • Give Local MOV:  A 24-hour online giving challenge that connects community members with local nonprofits to reinforce the value of philanthropic giving and community engagement. 
  • Regional Affiliate Funds:  

    An affiliate is a component fund (or collection of component funds) created within or by a community foundation, such as the PACF, to serve a defined geographic region and that uses a local advisory group.
