July 20, 2022

FAIRFIELD, OHIO – July 18, 2022 -- The board of trustees of the Fairfield Community Foundation announce the affiliation with the Hamilton Community Foundation effective July 1, 2022. This affiliation will enhance charitable services to the Fairfield community by way of additional resources and support from the Hamilton Community Foundation.


“We came to recognize the potential benefits that affiliation with the right partner could bring to the Foundation, most significantly being, increased resources and a reduction in fees for our donors. Additionally, the affiliation afforded the Fairfield Community Foundation the support of a high-functioning and experienced administrative staff that would enable our board to spend less time on day-to-day operations of the Foundation and more time identifying and focusing on the needs of the greater Fairfield community. After careful consideration, we felt the Hamilton Community Foundation’s expertise and credibility was the best fit for us,” said Doug Robertson, Chair, Fairfield Community Foundation.


As an affiliate, the Fairfield Community Foundation will benefit from the administrative support, guidance, and philanthropic expertise of the Hamilton Community Foundation. The Fairfield Community Foundation board will continue to advise and oversee the grants awarded to the greater Fairfield community.


“This new partnership allows the Fairfield Community Foundation to continue to meet the charitable and philanthropic needs of their community without worrying about many of the administrative functions,” said John Guidugli, President and CEO, Hamilton Community Foundation.
