Type: Common Good
Established in 2014 Having lived in Findlay and Hancock County almost all of their lives, Peggy Slough made this gift to honor the memory of her husband Gene and to leave a legacy to the community that both of them held dear. The Gene and Peggy Slough Fund is a Fund for the Common Good that will allow the Community Foundation to assess community needs and respond by awarding grants to nonprofit organizations doing the community's most critical work. Gene Slough was born in Findlay, Ohio in 1925, graduating from Findlay High School and later from the Ohio State University. Gene worked for Marathon Oil Co. for 35 years. Margaret (Peggy) Blackford was also born in Findlay, Ohio in 1930. Peggy graduated from Findlay High School and later from the University of Michigan. Peggy is grateful for her marriage to Gene and the privilege of helping to raise his three children: Jim, Tom, and Jenny. Together they enjoyed traveling, snow skiing, OSU football, tennis, reading and church work; but especially, they cherished family.
