House Bill 396 was introduced into the Ohio legislature (Hottinger, Dodd) generally to authorize a board of county commissioners to appropriate funds to tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations that serve a community purpose. Section 307.852 would provide that “a board of county commissioners may appropriate from the county general fund moneys not appropriated for any other purpose to an organization that the board determines serves a community purpose and that is exempt from federal taxation under subsection 501(a) and described in subsection 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.”
