What We Don’t Fund
Akron Community Foundation’s Community Fund grants improve life for all residents of Summit County.
We do not make grants for:
- Direct financial support to individuals
- Religious organizations for religious purposes
In accordance with our grant-making priorities, we generally do not fund:
- Newly established nonprofit organizations that duplicate existing services
- Curriculum for schools
- Disease-specific programs
- Economic development initiatives already being addressed by the Fund for Our Economic Future
- Programs at parochial schools that benefit only their students
- Multi-year grants
