“It’s an honor to be a part of The Dayton Foundation family - its donors, the Board, staff and volunteers. The great service they provide to the people of Greater Dayton is second to none. Few organizations can say they’ve been as committed to the community for more than 94 years like The Dayton Foundation or will continue to do so for generations to come.” – J. Norman Eckstein, Governing Board chair and Foundation donor
