Ways You Can Benefit Your Community

Your gift to the Cleveland Foundation allows you to support the causes you care about most and make a difference in our community. Giving to the foundation is flexible: you can donate to an existing fund or to a broad program area that addresses a specific community issue. You can also choose to make a donation that meets the area of greatest need. No matter which option you select, be assured that your dollars will be used exactly as you direct them. In addition, the Cleveland Foundation is a tax-exempt IRC 501(c)(3) organization (EIN 34-0714588), and all donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your generosity.
