Circle of Inclusion

The Circle of Inclusion was created to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Gay Community Endowment Fund. Members of this new giving campaign receive special recognition for their role in growing GCEF's endowment. The circle welcomes gifts and pledges of $1,000 or more, and all donations support the fund's mission of advancing a lived equality for LGBTQ+ people in Greater Akron. To learn more about the Circle of Inclusion, please contact Margaret Medzie.
