In 2018, Akron Community Foundation announced the creation of a new grant cycle devoted to capital improvements. The community foundation will offer grants every other year to nonprofits that need funding to renovate or repair their buildings or property, or to purchase equipment essential to the organization’s ability to deliver quality programming to its clients.
In the first year of this grant cycle, Akron Community Foundation awarded $250,000 in capital improvement funding to 27 nonprofit organizations.
The second round of capital grants was originally planned for fall 2020, but due to urgent needs that have emerged in the community, those dollars have been redeployed. We hope to provide more information about future capital grant cycles in the near future.
