Keeping the arts alive — and accessible — in Summit County

Performances like those of GroundWorks DanceTheater enrich our community, making it a great place to live.

Summer dance performances in the parks, cultural festivals in every neighborhood, and the Cleveland Orchestra under the stars at Blossom Music Center: These are just some of the cultural activities that make Summit County a fantastic place to live, work and raise a family.

Since 2000, Akron Community Foundation has directed more than $8.5 million in competitive grants to such efforts as:

  • World-renowned exhibitions at the Akron Art Museum
  • Empowering nonprofits and community members to share their stories on the Akronist
