CCAO Research and Educational Foundation
Founded in 1991, as a not-for-profit charitable foundation for the County Commissioners Association of Ohio (CCAO), the CCAO Research and Educational Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization that obtains grants and donations to provide the high-quality information, tools, and training that our members need, and the public deserves. CCAO has made a commitment to grow the Research and Educational Foundation to provide the best possible services to our members and minimize dues increases.
Contributions to the foundation are tax deductible and the Ohio Secretary of State’s office has confirmed that a county commissioner’s campaign committee may make a charitable donation to a 501(c)(3) organization, including the CCAO Research and Educational Foundation, so long as it remains federally tax exempt.
Also, if you are required to take an annual MRD (minimum required distribution) from a retirement account consult with your tax advisor as any of that MRD given directly to a charity is not taxed. To learn more about the Foundation, contact:
