Gay Community Endowment Fund
Full inclusion for everyone
One of the community foundation’s most important values is inclusiveness, and no fund embraces that more than the Gay Community Endowment Fund.
Established in 2001, the fund accepts grant applications for programs and services that positively impact the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, as well as Greater Akron as a whole. It also raises awareness about equality issues and rallies the LGBT community around a common philanthropic purpose.
Since its founding, the Gay Community Endowment Fund has invested nearly $360,000 into local causes
that change the lives of LGBT people in our community.
