About Massillon Community Charitable Fund
Massillon Community Charitable Fund was created in 1982 when a group of civic leaders in Massillon came together to create a charitable legacy that would strengthen their community for years to come. For more than 30 years, generous individuals, families and businesses have financially supported the fund, collectively making a difference in the Massillon area. To date, the Fund has awarded more than $175,000 to local organizations. Furthermore, the late Arthur P. and Martha Q. Underhill felt so strongly about the fund’s commitment to the community that they entrusted the Massillon Community Charitable Fund to recommend areas of support from the dollars available from their fund at Stark Community Foundation. The Underhill’s designated fund was created in 2014 through their estate. This greatly enhances the impact the Massillon Community Charitable Fund has in the community each year, bringing their total combined assets to more than $500,000.
