About the Foundations

Foundations Structure & Philanthropic Investments

Two private, nonprofit foundations comprise the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations. They share a common mission, vision and staff, while maintaining separate governing boards and funding concentrations. While serving statewide and national interests, particularly related to osteopathic medical education and research, the Foundations' philanthropic activities are concentrated primarily in eighteen (18) Ohio counties.
