Craig Young



Executive Director

Inspiring Service


Serial entrepreneur. Venture capitalist. Venture philanthropist. Family foundation president. Sought-after board member. Software genius. Craig Young is all of these and much more. Yet, the titles he values most are father and husband. The arc of Young’s life has surpassed his wildest dreams. Born in a poor area of Los Angeles, Young grew up in Wisconsin. By the mid- 1990s he achieved tremendous success in the software industry as the leading outside software supplier to SDRC and Apple’s software subsidiary, Claris. With this success came financial security for Young, his wife, Mary Beth, and their three children. They formed The Craig S. Young Family Foundation in 1995 to begin giving back — and volunteering. With his systems background, Young became concerned about the systems nationally and regionally supporting volunteers, leading to the creation in April 2017 of the Cincinnati-based nonprofit, Inspiring Service, whose mission is to create healthy, vibrant and connected communities.

Craig is representing Inspiring Service, a finalist in the 2019 Innovate for Good Challenge, as an organization applying new I.T. in the artificial intelligence category.
