Dear Advocate:

Advocates for Ohio's Future has released its first annual report, a look back at the last 15 months since the Campaign to Protect Ohio's Future changed its name and hired its first staff.

The report is a brief look at AOF’s activities and accomplishments on both the state and federal budget fronts. Co-Chairs Gayle Channing Tenenbaum and Mark Davis credit the hard work of the coalition’s steering committee and staff.

We especially want to share these accomplishments with you, as an AOF donor, and not only recognize your invaluable support but thank you again for helping to make it all possible.

In sharing this report, we wanted to take another opportunity to thank you and your organization for the invaluable financial support you have provided to AOF.

Read our 2010-2011 Annual Report.

A few highlights include:

  • $101 million added to the FY2012-13 budget for vital public services
  • 262 endorsing organizations
  • 1,168 participants in 18 webinars
  • 8,390 supporter emails to state and federal policymakers
  • 314 organizational signatories to AOF’s “Principles for Federal Deficit Reduction” delivered to Congress
