"Give light and the people will find their own way"

That's the motto that has guided The E.W. Scripps Company for more than 100 years and is the perfect expression of the journalistic values and community service that are the focus of its corporate foundation, the Scripps Howard Foundation.

Since its founding in 1962, the Foundation has served more than 1.5 million people through its Community Fund for charitable causes in regions where Scripps does business and programs for Scripps employees and retirees; the Greater Cincinnati Fund for causes where Scripps' corporate headquarters is located; and the Journalism Fund for support and advancement of the communications profession.

The Foundation's work is made possible with financial resources from its endowment and contributions from The E.W. Scripps Company, the Scripps and Howard families, Scripps employees and retirees, and interested others. The foundation has a full-time staff of seven and an active board of trustees from Scripps management and the founding families.
