Thank you to Summit County Executive Shapiro, Council and the Akron Community Foundation for recognizing the need and the value of Arts and Culture in our communities!
We're happy to announce that we're partnering with Summit County Executive Ilene Shapiro to help award $6.5 million in federal CARES Act funding for the COVID-19 Non-Profit Emergency Relief Grant Program, which will be distributed to Summit County nonprofits in grants ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. The grants will focus on basic needs providers, along with arts and culture service providers. Grant applications will be accepted Oct. 5 through 16. We'll share more details soon, but in the meantime, visit www.akroncf.org/grantmaking-initiatives/summit-county-cares-nonprofit-assistance for information.
