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.

2022 Grant Cycle

The application period for the second round of capital grants is now closed. Awards will be announced in late September.

Capital grants range from $2,500 to $25,000 and are available to current recipients of the foundation's competitive grant cycles, as well as to organizations with agency endowment funds at Akron Community Foundation. It is strongly recommended that at least 50% of the funds needed for the project are secured before applying. Only 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations with a physical location in Summit County are eligible to apply. To learn more, contact John Garofalo or view the grant information sheet.
