Welcome to the Guernsey County Foundation
Helping create charitable funds for Guernsey County through
the Power of One.
The Guernsey County Foundation was established in 1988 (originally the Cambridge Foundation) by local residents to make a direct and lasting impact for Guernsey County. Today, with over $11.6 million dollars in funds serving the community, the Guernsey County Foundation is an additional avenue of support for residents to give locally, ensuring lasting and flexible resources benefit the citizens and communities of Guernsey County.
Community funds under the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio’s umbrella like the Guernsey County Foundation are advanced by local leaders who are working to develop and deploy philanthropic resources to advance local opportunities and solve local challenges. FAO’s staff serves as back-office support for these local, volunteer driven foundations.
