Thank you again for trusting Akron Community Foundation with part of your charitable giving.

The benefits of membership

As part of the Akron Community Foundation family, there are many benefits you can count on, including:

  • Grantmaking guidance and support
    We have broad knowledge of nonprofits and community programs in areas such as literacy and education, health and human services, economic and civic affairs, the environment, and the arts. Just contact a member of our community investment staff and they’ll give you as much – or as little – help as you like.
  • Exclusive networking and educational programs
    Get invitations to our educational briefings designed specifically for fundholders. Note, too, the special Around Akron Calendar that is regularly updated and includes events of ours, our funds and other nonprofit agencies.
  • Help with growing your fund
    Once you’ve established a fund, you can easily add tax-wise gifts.
  • Online, 24/7 access to your fund
    If you want to check the balance or other details of your community foundation fund, you can log on to Donor Central at your convenience. If you need more information on how to use this service, please contact our database and grants administrator, Melina Boyce
  • Personalized service
    You don’t have to rely solely on technology. As a valued fundholder, you get automatic access to all our charitable expertise, and it’s just a phone call away. If you have questions, concerns or ideas, or if you need guidance or simple research about a giving vehicle or nonprofit cause, please contact our development and donor services staff, who are ready to assist you.

“The insight of the staff here is so helpful to me. They give me information about programs in the community that would have been difficult, if not impossible, for me to obtain on my own.”
