Welcome to the Niswonger Foundation!

The Niswonger Foundation was founded by businessman and philanthropist, Scott M. Niswonger. Unlike most private foundations, the Niswonger Foundation was established as an operating foundation with its own programs and projects. The Foundation is also approved as a charitable organization. Although a percentage of its operating funds go towards grant making, most funds go into the Foundation’s two primary programs – a scholarship and leadership program for selected college students committed to returning to the region and partnership programs for schools.

The Foundation's mission is "to create opportunities for individual and community growth through education and other sustainable projects," following the Chairman and Founder’s philosophy of "Learn-Earn-Return."™
