In addition to honoring our fundholders’ individual wishes, Akron Community Foundation gives strength to big ideas, vulnerable populations and targeted regions with an array of high-impact initiatives and grants.
First, through grants and special projects, the Community Fund focuses on four key areas:
Funding for those key areas comes from unrestricted and field-of-interest funds, and generous contributions from donor advisors and gifts to the Community Fund. The community foundation’s community investment staff, Distribution Committee, and board seek out the best proposals, the most needed projects and the most qualified nonprofits to offer them.
Second, many forward-thinking people and organizations in the region have aligned with Akron Community Foundation to support the following geographic- and issue-specific causes:
