Welcome to Akron!

Whether you’re new to Akron or coming back to your roots, we’re so glad you’ve chosen the Rubber City (or the City of Invention, if you prefer) as your home. While Akron is well-known as the home of LeBron James, The Black Keys and the Goodyear Blimp, it’s also home to some of the most charitable people in the country.

And that’s where we come in. Akron Community Foundation is the place where people come to get involved in their community. So, if you’re looking for a way to kick-start your community involvement and get in front of the movers and shakers, then you’ve come to the right place.

We’re connected with not only the most valuable nonprofits in town, but also the individuals and businesses who shape Greater Akron. So, while you’re getting acclimated, let us help you get plugged into this exciting, hard-working and charitable city of ours.

We can help you:

  • Fill your social calendar. Sign up for our emails and you’ll get invited to our events, where you can network with the most charitably minded individuals in our community and hear about the most exciting nonprofits in town. To learn about our more exclusive events, contact mmedzie1@akroncf.org.
  • Get involved. Our funds are dedicated to a wide variety of large-scale initiatives, from women and children to LGBT and minorities. Jump-start your involvement by volunteering with one of these funds now. 
  • Stay up to date. Sign up for our twice-a-year  magazine for features on the local people, businesses and organizations that are making our community a great place to live, work and enjoy.
  • Find out more about Akron. From festivals to theater performances to national park programs, Akron has it all. Check out our Around Akron Calendar for information on community events. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news about Akron Community Foundation, as well as community happenings.
With a little help, you’ll be calling yourself a true Akronite in no time. If you have any questions or would like help getting involved, please don’t hesitate to contact Margaret Medzie at mmedzie1@akroncf.org or by calling 330-376-8522.
