About GFCF

Providing a means of addressing community problems and opportunities.

In 1998 several community leaders wanted to create a means that would allow people who care about Fostoria to make a lasting investment in their community. So they created the Greater Fostoria Community Foundation (GFCF) to provide an opportunity for those with a sense of community loyalty and pride to make lasting and tangible benefits to their community.

The GFCF operates independently of government or business and its sole objective is to benefit the community.

The Foundation is a collection of individual funds made up of gifts and bequests from individuals, corporations, and other foundations.
