About Stark Community Foundation

Established in 1963 as a multiple trusteeship community foundation by the five Stark County banks operating trust departments. Assets from The Edward A. Langenbach Trust, designated for charitable use in “Canton and its environs,” were transferred to the Foundation and matched by funds contributed by the Timken Foundation of Canton. At the end of 1964, all five Corporate Trustees in Stark County held funds of the Foundation, which totaled $4.6 million. Grants have been awarded regularly since 1965, and to date, total more than $170 million.

The Foundation partners with over 750 individuals, families, businesses and nonprofits that have created charitable funds to impact the lives of others through the most effective philanthropy possible. Ranked in the top 10 percent of community foundations in the United States today, Stark Community Foundation is committed to serving donor needs and strategically addressing local issues.
