THE GALION COMMUNITY FOUNDATION (GCF)
The Galion Community Foundation (GCF) was formed in 1957. It is a charitable organization pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All donations are tax deductable.
Through its all volunteer board, the GCF administers over twenty (20) different funds and is always willing to add additional special funds or accept donations to its general fund. Thirteen of the funds provide scholarships; the rest assist local charities.
Unless otherwise directed by donors, the GCF seeks to preserve the principal of the funds. Money donated will earn income in perpetuity to benefit our area students and community.
Since 2001, the GCF has provided for distributions of nearly $600,000.00, and over $200,000.00 from our various scholarship funds. We extend a huge “Thank You” to all donors for helping to keep a good thing going.
Anyone wanting more information about the GCF may contact any of its members. The GCF will also provide speakers for other area organizations.

- Mr. Dan Shealy, Chairman
- Mr. David Spraw, V. Chairman, Secretary
