Current Greene Giving Accounts

By: Dennis Phillips,
Past President, Greene County Community Foundation

There can be little doubt about a certain amount of philanthropy is simply good business, and that works for the long-term benefit of the community.

I was fortunate to get an education in the very earliest years of Wright State University. Some local leadership was interested enough to help create a new educational institution. Other folks happened to be kind enough to continue to contribute to scholarship within the Greene County Community Foundation, d/b/a Greene Giving. That’s what I think philanthropy is about in Greene County.

Greene Giving serves people in Greene County who care about their communities. Results happen in their communities as Greene Giving serves them.

Here are a few examples of current Greene Giving Accounts:
