OLA Establishes Foundation

The Ohio Lobbying Association Board of Directors is pleased to announce the creation of the Ohio Lobbying Association Foundation, a non-profit foundation established in late 2016.

The purpose is to allow OLA members and friends to make tax-deductible contributions to the OLA Scholarship program and other charitable causes. The overall goal is to provide additional scholarships to college students across Ohio who are studying public policy. Currently, the OLA Scholarship Program provides two $2,000 scholarships to students at Ohio State University's John Glenn School of Public Affairs.

The Foundation will host the Mike Morrison Memorial Golf Outing and other fundraisers throughout the year. The 2017 Board includes:

Jeff DeLeone, Jeff DeLeone & Associates
Kevin Futryk, Goverment Advantage Group
Victor Hipsley, Governmental Policy Group
Kurt Leib, Capitol Advocates
Lora Miller, Ohio Council of Retail Merchants
Miranda Motter, Ohio Association of Health Plans
Vince Squillace, Sr., Ohio Home Builders Association
