The Marsh Foundation has a rich history within the Van Wert and surrounding communities, thanks in part to the legacy left by George and Hilinda Marsh. Two individuals who were compelled to find a way to serve the youth in our area. “We are proud of our efforts to continue the vision of the Marsh family for the past century and the fact that we have been able to impact thousands of children and families in that timeframe,” Grothouse said.
We invite you to be part of our history and join us as we celebrate that legacy. We are looking forward to serving for another 100 years.
