About our Philanthropists:

Philanthropists of the Year Bill and Jenny McCloy are connection creators. They seize opportunities to bring people and organizations together to raise awareness, resources, and new realities that improve the lives of others. Bill and Jenny have been married 33 years on October 2, 2020. They have four children and reside in Liberty Township.  Family is at the heart of all they do. 

“Our pride and our appreciation,” they say, “are the gift of family that God has bestowed on us”.

Bill and Jenny lead with their love of family, and with their hearts.  Bill serves as President of the board of directors of Ken Anderson Alliance (KAA), an organization that seeks to change the lives of generations of families affected by developmental disabilities.  Jenny serves as board chair for Melodic Connections, an organization that uses the power of music to connect people in community, and she has served as chair of the Reel Abilities Film Festival.

They also support/serve organizations such as Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati, Beech Acres Parenting Center, St Vincent de Paul, Stepping Stones, St. Joseph Home, DePaul Cristo Rey high school, LADD,  Boys and Girls Club of West Chester Liberty, Life Town, The Learning Experience, and  The OSU Fisher Business school alumni board.

Gerry brings perspective from over five decades of business management and legal successes to his philanthropic endeavors. During His 33-year career at Procter and Gamble, he crisscrossed the globe managing engineering and construction projects. His military service, which included an assignment to participate in court-martial as an advocate, influenced his decision to go to law school at age sixty. 

After law school, he joined Legal Aid’s Family Law practice group as a volunteer attorney. Eighteen years later, his dedication to provide effective representation to his victims of domestic violence clients, many of whom have experienced significant physical and emotional abuse, continues. In addition to his pro bono legal work, Gerry gives back to the community by serving on the boards of Purcell-Marion High School, ArtsWave, and The Taft Museum of Art, where he has been the Board Chair for eight years.
