In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Defiance Area Foundation in 2019:

We were blessed with generous donations and legacy gifts that enabled us to make 75 grants from our community fund of $1,000 each as part of our Anniversary Celebration. Our goal this year was to support more individuals, families, and organizations that help our community and get to know those small organizations that need financial assistance.
