What Is Akron Community Foundation?

Our dedicated professionals are ready to help you with your family tradition of giving. With 66 years of local service, we have more than 740 charitable funds and have awarded nearly $196 million in grants.

Institute for Emerging Philanthropists

To help the families we work with most effectively pass their charitable legacies on to future generations, in 2019 we founded the Institute for Emerging Philanthropists, an exclusive educational program designed to support, inspire and cultivate this developing group of donors.
