Contributions That Strengthened the Foundation’s Capacities
The Cleveland Foundation is grateful to every individual who has helped build its endowment of $2,132,806,744. The collective generosity of Greater Clevelanders has made it possible for the foundation to serve present and future generations in its first 100 years by nurturing programs and initiatives that have creatively addressed community needs.
While every donor is important, some have made farsighted bequests or pioneered philanthropic relationships that have strengthened the institutional fiber of the Cleveland Foundation itself. A number of these visionary contributors, who have enhanced the foundation’s capacity to respond, facilitate, convene and lead, are highlighted here.
