Galen Roush - GAR Foundation
Born from the desire to support the many needs of Northeast Ohio communities through philanthropic efforts, the GAR Foundation
was established in 1967.
The growing success of Roadway Express, Inc.
provided chairman and major shareholder, Galen J. Roush
, the opportunity to institute a charitable trust.
Upon the advice of Mr. Roush's
attorney, Lisle Buckingham, half of Mr. Roush's
estate was designated to fund the trust named the GAR
(jee-ay-är) Foundation-an acronym for Galen
