Ashland Optimist Foundation

What We Do

Ashland Optimists' motto is “Friend of Youth." We provide many youth activities, such as: recreational youth sports, essay and oratorical contests, college scholarships, community swim pool, fishing derby, safety on wheels, respect for law, and much more.

Why We're Great

Ashland Optimists ensure that all youth, whether they can pay or not, may participate in activities such as youth sports, summer swim at the community pool, learn about bike safety, compete in essay and oratorical contests for scholarships, and more.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

The Foundation would like to fund a major renovation of the kiddie pool area at the Ashland Swim Pool. The swim pool is a major activity for youth during summer months. The kiddie pool is over 30 years old and in need of various upgrades.
