Athens County Report

Originally commissioned in 2010, this snapshot informed much of the Foundation’s work, as well as, that of other nonprofits, churches, and governments in Athens County. This report is an attempt to look at our community today, and will also inform and direct the work of the Foundation for the next five years. The Athens Foundation produced this report in collaboration with Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs and the School of Visual Communication.

Several key findings in the areas of economic vitality, thriving communities, and individual health & wellbeing are discussed in the report. The Athens County Foundation invites the community to strategically invest in creating meaningful and measurable results that make a real difference in our community. Through this work, the Foundation will align partners to accelerate results.
