The Tipp City Foundation is pleased to announce the unanimous appointment of Bill Wendel to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. 

Tipp City has been Bill Wendel’s home for over twenty years. During that time he and his wife, Heather, have raised two children and have renovated a home in downtown Tipp City.

Bill has been an active member in our community through serving as a scout leader and the Tipp City Library Board of Trustees. Bill also founded and runs the annual Tippapalooza music festival, which benefits a local charity every year. As Bill says, “The organizations I have been a part of do a great job enhancing our community. And there are many other organizations that support our community in other ways. The Tipp City Foundation touches all of these organizations in a way that enables Tipp to be greater than the sum of its parts.” 

Bill’s hands-on involvement in the community as well as his innovative spirit will serve the Foundation well in its mission to promote local community endeavors and advance charitable giving through an unwavering commitment for future generations. 

The Tipp City Foundation continues to welcome new board members. If you’d like to join Bill and make a difference through the Foundation, please contact Foundation President Dee Gillis at 937-528-2482 or
