In 2010, Leadership Columbus honored American Electric Power (AEP), who as a corporation has made it part of their mission to not only give generously to the entire community, but to recognize that a community can only be as great as its leaders. In keeping with the company’s philosophy, AEP has contributed considerable resources of time, talent and treasure to Leadership Columbus and has always served with an open heart.

The Dispatch Printing Company, 2009
Leadership Columbus has benefited from many incredible corporate sponsors, but The Dispatch Printing Company is at the top of the list. The company has been instrumental in helping fund the graduation event for Leadership Columbus’ signature program as well as many other program days and events. Leadership Columbus is honored to be associated with such an outstanding company.
The Crane Group, 2008
It was their recognition of the necessity to make certain that there was always a reserve of community leaders ready to “step up to the plate” and assume leadership roles in our community, the Crane family determined to make this a priority and created the “The Robert S. Crane, Jr. Trusteeship Fund for Leadership Columbus”. This fund has been a source for scholarships to Leadership Columbus’ signature program and helps Leadership Columbus grow new initiatives to improve nonprofit governance in our community. We have been privileged that the Crane Family chose to honor the legacy of Bob Crane’s contributions to our community by linking his name with Leadership Columbus.
