Wood Family Fund (Unrestricted)


Donald Wood, businessman in Columbia City, Indiana is a well known and respected innovator and pacesetter. With the support of his two sons, John and Doug, the three started the business. While his son, Dave, joined the company a few years later. The Wood family grew 80/20 Inc. in Whitley County into a business with over 300 employees in a 290,000 sq ft facility.

Son, John Wood, retired for 12 years, was coaxed out of retirement in 2018 when he learned he will be the face of the Wood Family funds. Generous unrestricted funds were established in eleven counties that surround the home office of 80/20. From the northeastern most counties to south of Ft Wayne, the counties of LaGrange Steuben, Noble, DeKalb, Kosciusko, Whitley, Allen, Wabash, Huntington, Wells, and Adams will strive to uphold the reputation of the Wood family and work to promote the generosity of the Wood Family Fund.
