The Piqua Community Foundation encourages charitable giving to benefit the citizens of Piqua, and provides a variety of methods for donors to help fulfill their charitable giving wishes.


The Scott and Margaret Hinsch Community Service Awards


Margaret W. Hinsch Awards were presented to:

Wilma Earls, chairman of The Bethany Center, whose dedication to those in need served approximately 14,000 meals to Piqua residents last year.

Carolyn “Suzy” Hawkes from the Adult Program Committee of the Y.W.C.A. Piqua, whose Knitters for Cancer has more than two dozen ladies knitting hats, scarves and lap robes for those with cancer, with over 700 items being donated.

Scott J. Hinsch Awards were presented to:

Jeff Lange, who as a volunteer revived the Miami County Y.M.C.A .Master Swim Team to encourage competitive swimming for adult swimmers in our area.

Jim Gover, who serves as an advocate and fundraiser for Piqua Parents As Teachers, providing time, energy, effort and equipment for their quarter auction events.

These awards differ from existing recognition programs because the honorees are selected based on activities done on behalf of one single organization in one specific calendar year. In addition, the non-profit groups whose nominees were selected will each be awarded a $1000 grant from the Hinsch Family Fund of The Piqua Community Foundation, in recognition of that outstanding volunteer.

The awards were created by the Hinsch family to honor the memory of their parents, the late Margaret and Scott Hinsch, who were active volunteers in Piqua for many years.  John and Marsha Hinsch of Piqua, and Dr. Linda and Bob Campbell of Kansas, have established a fund in The Piqua Community Foundation to provide the monetary grants to the local non-profit organizations. The awards will continue be made annually.
