Established in 1992, The Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation is an outgrowth of the L. Dale Dorney Fund. The Dorney Fund, established in 1976 by L. Dale Dorney, has served as a model of grantmaking and philanthropic giving in our community. Between the years of 1976 and 1996, the Dorney Fund awarded $4.4 million in grants to nonprofit organizations, educational programs and scholarships that benefited citizens in Hancock County.
Many local donors have followed in Mr. Dorney’s footsteps, making it possible for The Community Foundation to grant $3.3 million in 2008.
