Welcome to the Ohio Blue Shield Fund
The Ohio Blue Shield Fund is a 501(c)(3) approved non-profit organization created in the memory of John P. Vulanich. Active in his community of Niles, Ohio for nearly his entire adult life, John Spent 25 of those years (1958-1983) as a Niles City Police Officer. He was very proud of his police service, so upon his death in August 2009 our family decided to create the Ohio Blue Shield Fund in his memory and honor.
