Welcome to the Canton Community Foundation!
Dear Friends of the Community,
The Canton Community Foundation plays an important role in helping improve the lives of Canton residents and surrounding areas through philanthropy. Because of the outstanding community support, great things are happening across our area. Over the past year, here are just a few ways the foundation has worked to help strengthen our community:
Veteran education – hosted our annual Veterans’ Summit designed to educate veterans about available benefits and resources.
Feed the hungry – provided assistance to Open Door Food Pantry and Gleaners Food Bank that will provide food for individuals and families struggling financially.
Improve education – collaborated with other community partners to create a Local College Access Network (LCAN) to encourage higher education and increase college enrollment. We also continued to provide scholarships to high school students and adults returning to college. Since 1990 CCF has awarded more than $500,000 to 500 area students!
Strengthen nonprofits – provided informational workshops designed to educate and strengthen our local nonprofits so they can better serve the community.
Please look for more impactful activities in the near future. We are your community foundation and we are committed to building a vibrant, compassionate and engaged region.
