Neighborhood leaders participate in a Neighborhood Leadership Council at Stark Community Foundation on the second Monday evening of every month. This council is a continuing educational tool and sharing experience for neighborhood leaders. Neighborhood leaders build relationships with one another and neighborhood associations work together on various civic projects for the safety and well-being of all city residents.

Charitable grants are available for qualifying neighborhood organizations in Canton, Alliance and Massillon. The grant awards vary.
