A Family Tradition

Unity and Legacy Through Philanthropy

Tradition is an important part of the family dynamic: a set of values and shared identity, a common thread that extends beyond our lifetime.

For many, philanthropy is both a family tradition and a family expression. Philanthropy conveys, “This is what’s important to me. This is what my family is about.” It respects the past while embracing the future. It binds families together but challenges them to think bigger. It’s inwardly fulfilling and outwardly impactful.

But when it comes to creating a tradition of family philanthropy, where do you start?

Maybe you have a family foundation or a donor-advised fund, but you’re looking for ways to increase your family’s involvement. Or perhaps you’re at a point in your life where you’re now able to give back charitably and want to include your family in the process. Wherever you are on your charitable journey, Akron Community Foundation can be a valuable resource for you and your family.

We understand that your approach to charitable giving is as unique as your family dynamics, and we will work with you to learn what you want your family legacy to be and how we can help you reach your charitable goals.

In the end, it’s all about you and your unique wishes. Whether that’s to teach a geographically diverse family to give back to Greater Akron or to encourage loved ones to explore their own altruistic visions, we will help you develop a strategy that brings your family closer to one another and your goals.
