MIAMI COUNTY — The Miami County Foundation is pleased to announce a new business partnership program.

The foundation was established in 1985 by Richard Hunt, whose vision was to serve the citizens of Miami County by providing financial support for community based programs, the arts, community development, scholarships and human services. The purpose of the newly formed business partnership program is to grow the foundation financially and through public awareness. The foundation board of directors currently manages more than $13 million and annually distributes approximately $400,000 in grants to more than 200 organizations, and schools in and around Miami County.

Foundation board president Andy Pratt said, “The new business partnership program will allow the Foundation to provide more support to important community based programs designed to help Miami County citizens. I couldn’t be more grateful for the tremendous support that we have received from our business community.”

The foundation’s executive director Cheryl Stiefel-Francis stated, “I am overwhelmed by the generosity of our new business partners and am hopeful that many additional local businesses will choose to partner with the foundation so that we can help more people.”

Foundation business partners have pledged to make annual financial contributions to the foundation over an extended period of time.
