Personalized Service

Our team of philanthropic experts take the time to listen and learn from you to make sure your giving experience provides the control, flexibility and impact you're looking for. We provide guidance and fund management that is unique to you—and as often or as little as you want. Plus, since we're located in your community, we're always close by when you need us.


Local Knowledge

We know Stark County. Our team has a deep understanding of the issues, opportunities and resources that shape our community and can help you make an impact in the areas you care about. We monitor all areas of the community—education, the arts, health, affordable housing, economic development and more. Our knowledge becomes yours.


Flexible Options

We offer a full range of fund options designed to fit your needs and accept a wide variety of assets (even the most complex forms of giving like real estate and closely-held assets). We'll work with you or your trusted advisor to determine the best way to meet your charitable and financial goals.


Trusted Stewardship

Your hard-earned dollars become part of our nearly $400 million investment portfolio and are professionally and strategically invested for long-term growth. By joining our large pool, you enjoy the leverage, economies of scale and diversification not generally available to smaller, individual funds.
