G. William Hartzell Community Grant cycle open through July 31st

Representatives from New Path Outreach proudly accept an award for their food pantry from Randi M. Pearson, Committee Chair, as part of The G. William Hartzell Charitable Fund's 2023 grant cycle.

George William “Bill” Hartzell was not only the leader of the Hartzell family businesses for many years, but was also well known for his active participation in community activities and organizations. His commitment to making a positive impact on the world around him continues in his memory through a bequest made as a result of his estate planning. This bequest allows The G. William Hartzell Charitable Fund to perpetuate his generosity to the community through grants and scholarships.

Each year, the fund provides unrestricted funding to charitable organizations that serve Piqua residents. The grants are unique in their simplicity of the application process and the unrestricted nature of the funds, allowing organizations to spend the money in ways that best serve their needs.
