NATIONAL CHAMPIONS! In 2009, some of central Ohio’s most treasured institutions, and one special community leader, were ranked #1 in the country in their respective fields. The Columbus Foundation celebrates the outstanding work of this group of nonprofit organizations and their leaders, and the distinction they bring to our community as a great place to live, learn, and play.
