Start Your Fund
Establishing a charitable fund at Akron Community Foundation is fast and easy. In most cases, you can start one in as little as a day.
Your options include six unique types of funds with many different ways to contribute tax-wise gifts to your fund, including an immediate gift of stock or real property or a planned gift like a charitable gift annuity or a bequest in your will. Whatever the method, our professional staff is here to help.
The questions below can help us prepare a customized draft fund agreement for you (or your client) to review. Once we receive this information, one of our donor services staff members will contact you to set up a time to discuss your charitable plans.
Or, you don't have to complete a form at all. Just call or email Margaret Medzie, vice president and chief development officer, or Laura Fink, director of development and professional advisor relations. They are happy to meet with you in person at your convenience to help you start your charitable fund.
Please note: In completing this form, you are initiating the process of starting a fund. Your fund will be created once a signed agreement and donation are received. For more information, please call 330-436-5610.
