Light up your community!

Shine your light to offer hope, encouragement,

kindness and compassion to everyone in your community.




Tiffin Community Foundation is asking everyone in Tiffin and Seneca County to BE A LIGHT this holiday season.

We want everyone to be involved!  If you don’t have Christmas lights or can’t afford an extra electric bill this year, we have purchased over 1000 battery operated window candles to pass out to anyone who wants to shine a light!

How can you, or your village, or your neighborhood Be a Light?  We want to get EVERYBODY involved!

We have just over 1000 battery operated window candles to give away.  We will be handing out candles at the Downtown Christmas Tree Lighting on December 4.  Candles will also be available until they run out, at the following locations after November 9:

Tiffin-Seneca Public Library

Tiffin YMCA

Salvation Army of Tiffin

Tiffin-Seneca United Way

Welcome to the Tiffin Community Foundation

Bridging obstacles that hinder worthwhile goals is why we exist. For over 30 years The Tiffin Community Foundation has been metaphorically building bridges to help the citizens of Tiffin and Seneca County, Ohio, access charitable and educational services and programs that will enrich their lives.

Tiffin Community Foundation currently has over 80 individual funds benefitting the causes and passions of donors in Tiffin and Seneca County. Donors contributed over $1million in 2017 to support the mission to significantly impact our community in a way that empowers every citizen of Tiffin and Seneca County to live their best lives. From the organizations working to meet community needs, to the donors who have the resources to meet those challenges, collaborations are being forged around many shared interests every day.

As we enter the giving season, millions of people from every background will be looking to give back to the communities that have supported them. They’ll also look to ensure that their heartfelt giving—however they choose to give—will have the most impact. That’s why so many of them will choose to give to a community foundation.

A gift to The Tiffin Community Foundation is an investment in the future of your community. Join us in recognizing our collective impact and the difference we can make together.
