With respect and loyalty, the legacy of Jerome and his wife Georgeanne continues through impactful support of qualified charities in greater Cleveland.

To provide impactful giving to charitable organizations in Greater Cleveland that serve the community in education inclusive of academic and vocational training; human service organizations that exist to enhance lives; cultural organizations that elevate the arts experience; care and programs for domestic and wild animals; mental health, substance abuse and medical needs for children and adults. Programs for veterans and food instability will also be considered as the Trustees review requests and award grants most important to Jerome and Georgeanne Osborne.
