The Henry and Louise Timken Foundation is a supporting foundation governed by a Board of Trustees awarding charitable grants primarily for the benefit of the Stark County community and programs of special interest.

In 1980, the Henry and Louise Timken Foundation transitioned from a private foundation to a supporting foundation of Stark Community Foundation. The Foundation has played an integral role in funding downtown Canton redevelopment efforts.
