Donor Advised funds are provided by families, individuals or institutions that recommend grants to nonprofits that they feel deserve the money. The Foundation examines the nonprofits carefully to see if the grant is rightfully deserved. 53 donor advised grants were given to 47 organizations that totals 452K. 

The Findlay-Hancock Community Foundation strives to help improve the well-being of all those in the community. The Foundation was established in 1992 as an estate gift from L. Dale Dorney. This organization has now granted more than $85 million to help and support the funding of the community.
