2016 Annual Report

The Fund for Our Economic Future is in many ways a “learning laboratory,” where philanthropy comes together to advance and share research on how to increase Northeast Ohio’s economic competitiveness; test new approaches to solving age-old problems; learn from one another what works in other parts of the region and put those lessons into action; and work with local communities to strengthen assets and build capacity on the ground in ways that connect to the regional economy. Underpinning all of this is our commitment to Growth & Opportunity (G&O for short) — which is at the heart of our 2016-2018 Strategic Direction. Read more on our progress in this year’s report.
