John and Tamara Luchini Fund for the Performing Arts Announced

February 09, 2017

The Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation is pleased to announce the establishment of the John and Tamara Luchini Fund for the Performing Arts.

An amateur thespian and life-long musician, John Luchini was an avid supporter of performing arts, including theater, musicals, and opera during his lifetime. He was involved with musicals at the University of Findlay and Fort Findlay Playhouse, and he and his wife Tamara have supported the FFP and numerous other arts organizations since then. While his children were students at St. Wendelin Catholic Schools, he assisted the drama program building sets, working with lights and sound and even performing with the orchestra. All in all, he was involved in 18 school productions.

Upon his death, the school created the John Luchini Drama Award in his memory. The award honors two St. Wendelin seniors who have made significant contributions to the drama program during their time at school. The John and Tamara Luchini Fund for the Performing Arts at The Community Foundation will continue to support the annual award for generations to come.

Designated endowment funds with The Community Foundation are established to provide a permanent resource for a nonprofit organization’s future. As the endowments grow, they become an increasingly valuable source of support for the programs and services these agencies provide to the community.
