To Our Friends Across the Valley The Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley has at the core of its mission to improve the quality of life for residents of the Valley, and 2016 was a year of growth in that mission with a focus on creating a healthy community for all. We began the year investigating the factors behind the region’s health outcomes, identifying their improvement as an essential aspect of our intended impact. Bringing our Board of Directors together with the Boards of our three supporting organizations was the beginning of many collaborative meetings. We began brainstorming the best way to address those poor outcomes and talking about how we could engage the community in determining what a healthy Mahoning Valley looks like. We then used the Innovations 2.0 conference as a platform for difficult discussions, addressing issues affecting all residents and planting the seeds of a blossoming cross-sector collaboration aimed at building the healthiest, most productive Valley possible. At that event, we pledged, and hold true to that pledge, to continue convening the community on these intricate issues and offering a platform for individuals and organizations from all sectors to work together. Our goal is to support collaboration to move us forward in creating changes that will surround families in every neighborhood with the opportunity to live their healthiest lives. Last year was easily defined by an increase in community leadership efforts, reflecting our commitment to the community and the well-being of those served by the Foundation. With 2017 underway, we continue the important work started last year and look to dig further into the root causes affecting our health outcomes, leveraging our leadership position and abilities to bring change agents to the table. We hope you will join us!

OUR MISSION The Community Foundation is a leader and advocate for strategic philanthropy, partnering with donors to anchor a permanent and growing endowment making investments in the Mahoning Valley that improve the quality of life for all residents. www.cfmv.org | 3

“For someone who wants to be a philanthropic donor the Community Foundation offers a great service by formally recommending causes.” -Diane and Kurt Sauer


The Diane and Kurt Sauer Endowment Fund While many may know Diane Sauer from her car dealership commercials, it is her and her husband Kurt’s attitude about philanthropy and supporting their community that is truly noteworthy. They have worked hard their whole lives, building successful careers and a beautiful family, all the while demonstrating to their two children the importance of giving back. As a member of the board of directors at the Community Foundation for the past six years, Diane plays an important role in guidance and community leadership efforts, offering her time and insights from her successful background in business. “The more I learned about the Foundation and the more involved in it I became, I could easily see the incredible work it accomplishes and what a great service it is to our community,” said Diane about her time on the board. Opening a fund in 2015, the Sauers see the Foundation’s oversight and recommendation of organizations and projects as the highlight of donor services offered. Eliminating

the research component from the process has made giving that much more of a positive experience. Kurt and Diane do not restrict their efforts to build a better community to philanthropic dollars, however, and both are directly involved with causes that matter to them. Diane has previously chaired the local United Way Campaign, serves on several nonprofit boards, and is a longtime Warren Rotary member. Kurt is an active member of Warren Kiwanis. In addition to their endowment fund at the Community Foundation, Kurt and Diane each have an endowed scholarship at The Ohio State University, which support students from Trumbull and Mercer Counties in Ohio. They established funds at the YSU Foundation for student work grants and the Diocese of Youngstown Foundation to support their local church parish, Blessed Sacrament of Warren. Their continuous philanthropic endeavors, while impressive, are just another day in the lives of Kurt and Diane. www.cfmv.org | 5

KEEPING ART ALIVE in the Community: Robert L. Tornello Endowment Dr. Robert L. Tornello, a local physician with many ties to the Youngstown Playhouse, left instructions to create a charitable fund upon his death to support the organization. This act was a clear demonstration of his commitment to philanthropy and the arts, and it has provided vital support for the Playhouse well beyond his lifetime. Originally established with KeyBank, the Fund was moved to the Community Foundation in 2007, right before the Playhouse entered a period of financial crisis following the 2008 recession. The Playhouse, which relied partially on the designated contributions from the Fund to help make a recovery in recent years, recognized the Robert L. Tornello Endowment Fund, along with the support of many other donors, on the opening night of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” in May 2016. The continuous support designated funds provide, as demonstrated by the Playhouse’s revitalization, can be integral to the survival of local organizations.

Bouncing Into Bascom With a high-need population, coming up with creative and effective programming to address school readiness is essential for the LaBrae School District. Bouncing into Bascom was one innovative solution, and with the support of the Kennedy Family Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation, Bascom Elementary was able to put it into action. With a goal for students to improve their physical, emotional, and social maturity, as well as develop early literacy and math skills, the school organized and executed a pre-kindergarten summer intervention program. Bouncing into Bascom spanned the course of three weeks in the summer of 2016, with 28 students attending class five days a week. Children were transported to and from the school, eliminating what is often a difficult barrier for students participating in extracurricular activities. The group was split into two classes, each taught by a Bascom Elementary teacher with the support of two paraprofessionals. Students learned school routines and basic kindergarten skills such as name recognition and writing, while daily recess and homework encouraged the formation of friendships and parental participation. Through an additional grant, breakfast and a snack were provided each day, along with a back pack filled with kindergarten school supplies at program end. Utilizing pre and post tests to evaluate student success, Maggie Kowach, principal at Bascom, 8 | 2016 COMMUNITY REPORT

"This school and community partnership enabled academic and social-emotional foundational skills to be taught in a positive learning environment before the school year began to students in most need of those valuable lessons.� -Maggie Kowach Principal, Bascom Elementary

reported an increase in post-test scores for 96% of students. On average, tests indicated a 25 point increase from pre to post assessments. “This extra support has attributed to higher reading levels, more on-task behavior, and the overall growth and achievement of all the kindergarten students at Bascom Elementary,� said Kowach. With one private sponsor already committed, the school plans to continue this successful program in 2017. www.cfmv.org | 9

INVESTING IN THE NEXT GENERATION: First Place Community Fund Scholar Royal S. Smith is a young man in whom the First Place Community Fund is proud to invest. From the Warren area, Smith fell in love with the University of Dayton’s atmosphere on his first campus visit, but with a single mother supporting him and another sibling enrolled in college, he stressed about how feasible his dream of attending would be. Receiving support from his hometown community helped ease that stress, when Smith was selected as the 2016 First Place Community Fund Scholar. Provided through the Fund’s work with The Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges, this

scholarship allowed him to redirect his energy from worrying about how he would pay for his degree in sports medicine to accomplishing that dream. “Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have received the The First Place Community Fund Scholarship,” Smith said. “This means a great deal to me because it allows me to focus on my schoolwork instead of worrying about the money that I need to surface in order to attend this school.” With the number of scholarship applications received by the Foundation, it is important that each one goes to a deserving candidate with the drive to succeed. The selection committee recognized those attributes in Smith, and they, along with the Foundation, are rooting for him!

MAKING CARE A CHOICE: Hospice of the Valley Hospice of the Valley (HOTV) began offering a Medicare Care Choices Model program in January 2016. One of only 141 hospices in the country to implement this program, the model allows patients, who are eligible but who do not elect their hospice benefit, to instead continue curative therapies while receiving medical interventions and support typically provided through hospice care.

Pictured above are members of the clinical team for Hospice of the Valley’s Medicare Care Choices Model program.

In conjunction with the patient’s attending physician, a skilled nurse conducts home visits and coordinates care with the whole health care team. Paula Durkin, director of the program, noted that 53% of their patients reside in Trumbull County and many are able to remain in their homes, a key benefit of the program. “For those patients who do not meet the criteria for the program, our nurse coordinator refers them to other services,” stated Durkin. “Support from the Community Foundation has been integral to us offering the Medicare Care Choices Model to our communities,” said Terry Kilbury, executive director. Leveraging the grant received from the Hospice Trust of Trumbull County, a component fund of the Community Foundation, HOTV received a matching grant from the Mercy Health Foundation.

Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation & Western Reserve Health Foundation Both health foundations administer two grant cycles per year with one remaining for the 2017 year.

head start program promotes healthy eating Alta Care Group’s Head Start Nutrition Enhancement Initiative educated families about healthy eating and exposed children to healthy foods. The program featured a farmer’s market and nutritious recipes. “Many of our parents took their children out of the classroom to shop at the market with them,” said Lori Stellmar, health and nutrition manager at Alta Head Start. “I was overjoyed as the child told the mom they ate pineapple in class and wanted to purchase it. Or the little boy who loved raw green beans wanted to buy those.” Stellmar has another market planned for April and says parents and children are already excited. “For most of our families this was an unforgettable experience.”

Community Legal Aid’s Health Education Advocacy and Law (HEAL) program integrates lawyers (as well as paralegals and students) into a patient’s health care team to resolve legal problems that are barriers to health. It is in working with health care partners that Marie Curry, managing attorney for HEAL, has seen the greatest impact of this program. “The nurses, physicians, social workers, front-line staff–everyone has a role to play, and once they understand how Legal Aid can help them, can help their patients, it becomes such a seamless collaboration,” said Curry. “We’re able to address issues that persist and keep them coming back for medical attention time and again.” Addressing the factors that produce poor health outcomes in a collaborative way is a priority of the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation, and with this program’s ability to bring so many partners to the table, it was a natural fit. “None of what we do would be possible without the support of our funding partners, like the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation,” said Steven McGarrity, executive director of Community Legal Aid. “What helps the most is not just having the funds to provide direct services to our clients, but also having the ability to make and cultivate meaningful connections with those organizations we’re working with.”

research and health Researchers from the Department of Human Performance and Exercise Science (HPES) alongside the Department of Human Ecology/ Dietetics at Youngstown State University (YSU) are using an interdisciplinary, student-driven community resource model to improve the health and well-being of the patients attending the Midlothian Free Health Clinic (MFHC). Through interdisciplinary education, the group is working to build experiential learning opportunities for YSU students while assisting vulnerable populations. “Providing services to vulnerable populations presents unique barriers not always seen in traditional health care,” remarked Dr. Sara Michaliszyn, assistant professor of Human Performance and Exercise Science. Health literacy and lack of engagement are two such barriers. To overcome them, researchers are first performing a health risk assessment (HRA). Performed by a supervised social work student, the HRA identifies the individual’s health care needs such as diet, physical activity, respiratory care, physical therapy, diabetes management, vision, or dental, to name a few. Following risk identification, patients are referred to the necessary programs. Since November, 33 patients completed the HRA with an average of four risks identified per individual. Most required dietary (65%) or exercise (55%) consultation, and out of the total referred to dietary and exercise, 22% enrolled in the program.

we’re More Than Grant makers: Serving the Community Great things are happening across the Valley and the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley is proud to play a part in many new efforts to improve life in our communities. Over the last year, we have been actively participating in a number of initiatives beyond our traditional grant making and investments in our community.

Our role is more than funder, expanding to include community leader, convener, and change agent. The donors and volunteers that support the Community Foundation have greatly influenced these meaningful and productive efforts. We thank each of you for the encouragement you’ve given us to step out and explore new opportunities to improve the place we all call home.

The National Standards Seal by our name indicates official confirmation from the Council on Foundations that we have met the most rigorous standards in philanthropy.


FUND FOR OUR ECONOMIC FUTURE The Fund for Our Economic Future is a regional collaborative of funders working together to promote economic development in Northeast Ohio. This year, we partnered with the Youngstown Foundation and Trumbull 100 to become a member of the Fund for the next three years. This investment gives us a seat at the table where strategies and priorities are developed and funding decisions are made, connecting the Valley to the technical and financial resources of the Fund.

ANY GIVEN CHILD WARREN Warren is one of only 23 school districts across the country, and the only one in Ohio, selected by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts to implement this model for arts education. Facilitators from the Kennedy Center work with the community to develop and implement a strategy to integrate the arts into all K-8 education. Our Community Foundation represents philanthropy on the crosssector community collaborative and will continue to provide technical assistance for the group as they move into the implementation phase of the project.

HEALTHY COMMUNITY INITIATIVE The Community Foundation and its affiliated partners–the William Swanston Charitable Fund, the Western Reserve Health Foundation, and the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation–are convening individuals and organizations from across the Valley to develop strategies to improve the health and wellness of all Valley residents. This collaborative approach is designed to improve health outcomes by changing the way we think about health and engaging stakeholders in a conversation on how, together, we can “build a culture of health.” The Innovations 2.0 conference in the fall amplified that conversation, drawing attention to the need for partners from every sector, not just health care, in order to make significant changes. After asking attendees to pledge to work toward building that culture of health, the Community Foundation took the same pledge, promising to use our position in the community to drive this initiative forward with input from all community members.
