Matt Buehrer was awarded the Philanthropist of the Year by the Tipp City Foundation at its Diamond Jubilee Celebration on September 20th at The Willow Tree. His nominator stated, “He’s not only a fine philanthropist—he is one of Tipp’s finest
citizens as well.”
Matt was instrumental in organizing our local giving circle, Give Where You Live Miami County, where he serves as co-chair. GWYL has donated over $120,000 to local charities in Miami County since its inception.
Last year, he organized a Fill the Truck for Texans in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Four semi-trailers were filled with over 120,000 pounds of supplies and sent down to Houston to help the victims. Matt drove one of the semis himself.
But these examples are in addition to the countless moments of generosity Matt has given Tipp Monroe Community Services, Needy Baskets, Pink Ribbon Girls, the InterFaith Community Foundation, and Stand Up to POTS. Webster’s Dictionary defines a philanthropist as “someone who makes an active effort to promote human
welfare,” which is exactly how Matt Buehrer conducts his life.
