Community Relations

The Ohio Machine is driven by the promise to foster the growth of the sport of lacrosse in the Greater Columbus area and throughout Ohio by taking an active interest in the development of youth players and programs across the state, and actively participating in events that positively impact the community at large. It is our goal as part of the Greater Columbus community to not only foster the growth of the sport, but to help in the betterment of our community as a whole.

Established in July 2014, the Ohio Machine Foundation is committed to growing the game of lacrosse through the support of programs and partnerships focused on community involvement and youth development both on and off the field. The Ohio Machine Foundation is managed by the Delaware County Foundation, which is a community based foundation, a non-profit organization that oversees permanent endowment funds set up by members of its community. For more information, click HERE.

The Machine takes an active role in community service during the Major League Lacrosse season. Each training camp, the Machine takes time away from the field to visit local hospitals and volunteer with organizations like the Ronald McDonald House. Additionally, the Machine supports the Delaware Library Summer Reading Program and visits different library branches throughout the summer to promote the program and the importance of succeeding in the class room and on the field.
