The Gillmor Charitable Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting the wellbeing of citizens in Seneca and Sandusky counties, has awarded funding to numerous local organizations, including: YMCA of Bucyrus-Tiffin, Grace Lutheran Church, Pleasant Union Cemetery, SCAT, Fostoria Learning Center, Black Swamp Area Boy Scouts, The American Civil War Museum of Ohio, and many more.
