Together, we’ve already made so much possible.

Each funded project was made possible by the generosity of people like you. Half of each gift went to support a project of the donor’s choosing to begin making an impact right away. The other half of each gift was invested in the I’m a Child of Appalachia Fund to pursue the greatest needs and most promising opportunities in our communities for generations to come. The first round of Cause Connector projects closed on April 9, 2021. The Foundation for Appalachian Ohio is loading in last gifts and will have the final list of funded projects updated here by April 21.
