Welcome!

The Bryan Area Foundation and its affiliate Foundations, Edon, Montpelier and Millcreek-West Unity, are dedicated to improving and enriching life in Williams County by connecting people, good ideas, real needs and charitable resources. Amazing things can happen when all of us join together for the common good… Towns and neighborhoods thrive… Community pride swells… Schools are enriched… Kids discover new possibilities… The arts are celebrated and lives are changed for the better!

Since 1969, the Foundation has contributed over $12.5 million to worthy community projects and scholarships that enhance the communities and residents we serve.
