The Short North Foundation was created in 2000 to help leverage the efforts of all the Short North organizations by providing time, money and talent. The Foundation fosters partnerships within and among the neighborhood organizations to further enhance the lives of all who live, work, and play in the Short North area of Columbus,Ohio.

The SNF is helping to build a legacy for the Short North that will extend beyond our lifetime through an endowment fund that serves as perpetual community resource. The organization also selects a special initiative for the advancement of the neighborhood. The projects may range from the building of pocket parks for beautification of the area to a special neighborhood event. The SNF donates time, talent, and money to help achieve specific goals as well as to help leverage the resources of its constituent organizations.
