During our most recent fiscal year, Akron Community Foundation distributed $13.5 million to nonprofit organizations through our more than 820 charitable funds, including donor-advised, designated and agency endowment funds.
Approximately one-fourth of this annual grantmaking total is awarded through Akron Community Foundation’s quarterly competitive grant cycles and the grant cycles of our affiliate funds, like the Women’s Endowment Fund and Gay Community Endowment Fund.
We help nonprofits sustain their charitable missions forever through agency endowment funds held right here at Akron Community Foundation. Endowments offer a predictable source of income in an unstable funding environment. We also offer development guidance to help you grow your endowment over time, as well as the ability to accept more complex charitable gifts from your donors.
