History of the Logan Family Foundation

The mission of the Logan Family Foundation is to use the lessons we have learned from our parents and through our individual life experiences to “pay forward.” The goal is to fund needs for families and children in the communities both in which we were raised and live today.


The Logan Family Foundation was created in 2004 and fund raises through an annual celebrity golf outing to assist selected beneficiaries of the Foundation. We have been joined by honorary chairs each year to help create interest and awareness, including:

·         Jim Tressel

·         Archie Griffin

·         Eric Snow

·         Thad Matta

·         Clark Kellogg

·         Todd Blackledge

·         Larry Kehres

·         Darrell Hazell

·         Richard (Dick) Logan

Dick and Gloria Logan raised five children that make up the Board of Trustees for the Foundation: Amy Logan Walther, Jeff Logan, Jud Logan, Whitney Logan and Andy Logan.


A sports-centric family, Dick played football at The Ohio State University and for the Green Bay Packers; Jeff played football at Ohio State; Jud is a four-time Olympian for Team USA in the hammer throw; Andy played football at Kent State University, Whitney was an outstanding HS football player and has become a highly successful businessman and Amy is the MVP of the family holding everything together. 

Dick passed away in November 2016, hours after watching the Buckeyes beat “That Team Up North.”  Gloria continues to oversee operation of the Foundation and is a great source of inspiration to all of the family.


The Logan Family Foundation has awarded more than $500,000 to various beneficiaries since inception and will continue to raise money to support the needs of our beneficiaries. Future plans are to create an endowment that will allow for the legacy of continued gifts. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
