Type: Donor Advised
Gaven and Erin Smith created this fund to support their family’s charitable giving.
Erin is a graduate of Arlington High School. She went on to Owens Community College to earn a degree in applied science and now works as an occupational therapist assistant at Ultimate Rehab.
Gaven is a graduate of Milford High School in New Hampshire, but his parents are from Ohio. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 2001-2005 and did several tours overseas as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Gaven received his bachelor’s degree from Bowling Green State University, and his MBA from Xavier University. Gaven works in Findlay for Fifth Third Bank as an investment executive.
The Smiths have two children and live in Perrysburg. It is their hope that their two children Caroline (6) and Griffin (3) will learn from their donor advised fund and carry on the legacy of giving their family has started in the community.
