Formed as a private foundation in 1985, the Schooler Family Foundation was founded and guided through its early years by Seward and Edith Schooler, both lifelong citizens of East Central and Appalachian Ohio.

The Foundation continues a long-standing commitment of support for the areas of economic development, environment, energy, education, human service, aging, religion, healthcare, recreation, science and medicine, historic preservation, leadership, civic engagement and citizenship, arts and culture, community development, and the growth and thriving of philanthropy and non-profit voluntary organizations. Funding is directed toward a wide range of philanthropic purposes, including annual operating budgets, specific programs and projects, equipment, capital facilities and buildings, endowment, and capacity-building.

The Schooler Family Foundation has two opportunities to apply for grants in 2022, the first beginning March 1 and the second beginning Sept. 1. The foundation welcomes inquiries from two types of organizations: Organizations which have, since 1985, received funding from the foundation, and organizations located in or benefiting the residents and communities of Coshocton County, Frazeysburg, and Perryton, Ohio.  The Foundation also maintains a policy of reviewing and responding to emergencies, natural disasters, and unpredictable sudden community challenges.
