In 2012, the Community Foundation was thrilled to welcome a new supporting organization to the CFMV family, the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation. This foundation was established to continue supporting the healthcare education and needs of Trumbull County residents.
“As a supporting organization of the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, the Trumbull Memorial Health Foundation is committed to increasing opportunities for achieving a healthy life for every member of the Trumbull County community. We are pleased by the progress of the Healthy Community Partnership and encourage efforts in the Valley to collaboratively overcome persistent obstacles to healthy outcomes for our residents.”

The Trumbull Memorial Hospital Foundation was originally incorporated in 1976 as an Ohio nonprofit corporation, with its supported organization and sole member being Trumbull Memorial Hospital. In March 2009, the foundation, the hospital and Forum Health, along with other related entities, filed for bankruptcy protection.
After more than two years of proceedings, the foundation was released from the bankruptcy process and the foundation board secured a supporting organization designation with the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley in July 2012.
Trumbull County Probate Court Judge Thomas Swift released restrictions on nearly $11 million in TMHF funds, concurring with the opinion of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. Previously restricted to the support of Trumbull Memorial Hospital, the funds are now used to support a broad range of healthcare services and healthcare education needs of Trumbull County residents.
