Celebrating 100 Years!

From 1921 to today, The Dayton Foundation has been helping people help others in Greater Dayton and beyond! From an initial gift of $250,000 from the Patterson family, to $653 million in assets as of June 30, 2020, The Dayton Foundation is upholding the dream to help individuals help others in Greater Dayton and beyond.
