6 Types of Funds

Establish a charitable fund with as little as $5,000. We offer six options to choose from. You name your fund, its purpose and your level of involvement. We'll do the rest.

At Akron Community Foundation, you pay no fees to create or maintain your charitable fund. We assess a modest annual fee, but only after you have received your full charitable deduction – the biggest deduction offered by any nonprofit. Other benefits include our diverse, actively managed investment portfolio and low investment fees – benefits typically available to large foundations only. You also get collaboration with our helpful staff, but only when you want it.
