Miami County Foundation has awarded more than $10 million in funding since its inception to benefit local non-profit organizations, schools, classrooms, and area communities through its grant funding and has supported hundreds of local students’ educational paths through its endowed scholarships.

Miami County Foundation was founded in 1985 by Richard E. Hunt to honor his wife, mother, and children. Mr. Hunt incorporated the Miami County Broadcasting Co. in 1946 and founded the county’s first radio station, WPTW, in Piqua. It had long been his dream to establish a local foundation to serve the entire county. Its outreach includes grant and scholarship programming.
