We’re David and Cheryl Venarge. If you’re anything like us, you are always looking for ways to spend more quality time with your kids and grandkids. You’re also probably eager to share your charitable values with them to carry on when you’re gone.
Akron Community Foundation can help you do both.
Here you will find a helpful staff who can talk with your entire family about philanthropy. And they’ll also listen: to the causes you and your family value; to how you want to carry on your legacy when you’re gone; and to how you want to interact with local nonprofits. They can make you aware of exciting nonprofit programs in line with your family’s charitable values, if that’s what you want. If you wish, they can even get you in to see those programs in action.
All this helps us make more informed decisions about how to invest our charitable dollars. It also helps us think about our family’s giving in a more cooperative and personal way. So now, when we make a grant from our donor-advised fund, we can celebrate together: as a family.
How will you celebrate philanthropy?
At Akron Community Foundation, there are charitable resources for everyone. What can we help you with?
