Foundation for Ohio Guard and Reserve
The Foundation assists in family program support and promotion of the employer-service member relationship.
During the first few years the activities of the Foundation had been limited to providing financial support to the Ohio Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve in enhancing recognition for outstanding employer support to Ohio’s Guard and Reserve members.
Today, the Foundation assists in family program support and promotion of the employer-service member relationship.
The Foundation, for example, provided lodging for a three-day employer Bosslift trip for 25 employers to Gulfport, Mississippi. The Foundation provided food and refreshments for employers during the one-day In-State Guard/Reserve Bosslifts featured annually by the ESGR Committee. Support to family programs developed around unit deployment and re-deployment programs and projects; and funding emergency assistance in support of employer travel and lodging costs have been recent support projects for the Foundation.
Additionally, the Foundation provides funds to develop customized award products which are presented by ESGR to the top three employers in Ohio who provided extraordinary levels of support to their Guard/Reserve employees.
