Our Fund is our members; they define the work we do, establish the strategies we support, and guide our operations. Fund members represent a broad philanthropic collaboration, including: private, community and corporate foundations, higher education institutions, health care systems, corporations, business and civic associations, government entities, community-based collectives, and individuals. Their missions vary widely, ranging from supporting entrepreneurship to combatting the root causes of poverty. Despite these differences, Fund members agree that a healthy, growing economy is essential to each of their distinct missions. Our members also vary geographically, working across the Northeast Ohio region, including the metropolitan areas of Akron, Canton, Cleveland, and Youngstown, and surrounding counties.
