The Gahanna Foundation

Nice to meet you!

What we’re all about.

The Gahanna Foundation was established, in July of 2018 to fund projects directly or indirectly related to the Gahanna Sanctuary, but it’s grown to be so much more.

You might know us from our first flagship project — we transformed the historic bell tower atop the 1895 church into one of Gahanna’s brightest and most recognizable landmarks — a beacon of electric art that visitors, locals, and tourists come to see night after night.

After three years of fundraising that transferred over $11,000 to the Gahanna Sanctuary to turn the once-dark 1895 bell tower into Gahanna’s most recognized historic community landmark, The Gahanna Foundation is pivoting to other worthwhile neighborhood projects. These new lanes of interest will further improve quality of life through small and large grassroots projects that will charm and inspire public and private partners to seek avenues of collaboration and partnership.
