Structured in concert with Akron Community Foundation’s Women's Endowment Fund, which serves Summit County, the Medina County Women's Endowment Fund accepts grant applications for programs that support women and children in Medina County. It specifically makes grants to programs that create opportunities for the educational, physical, emotional, social, artistic and personal growth of women and children.
The fund encourages the advancement and full participation of women and children in the community and in society. It also assists women in their growth as philanthropists, including through its Legacy Tree of Giving annual membership group.
Since its establishment in 1998, the fund has awarded nearly $270,000 in grants to programs that enrich the lives of women and children throughout Medina County.
