The Virginia W. Kettering Foundation was created upon the death of Virginia in 2003 to continue her legacy of supporting those communities and organizations that were important to her.

The Foundation supports charitable activities within eight counties in Ohio--Montgomery, Greene, Clark, Miami, Darke, Preble, Butler and Warren--as well as Kettering University, the Cincinnati Zoo and the Sloan-Kettering Institute.

The Foundation’s Distribution Committee meets biannually (April and October) to make funding decisions. Please visit the Application Process page for more information and to apply.
