2010 New Gifts

The idea for the Cleveland Foundation sprang from the mind of Frederick Harris Goff, CEO of Cleveland Trust Bank and a mover and shaker in the city who liked to think big.

His innovative spirit led to our founding in 1914, making it possible for Greater Clevelanders of all means to build a lasting legacy.

In 2010, we received $44.6 million in new gifts, large and small, that created family funds, supported special initiatives, or provided broad support for our work.

Although these gifts and funds support many different causes, the overarching intention is the same: improving the quality of life for Greater Clevelanders in Cuyahoga, Lake, and Geauga counties.

We are so deeply appreciative of the tremendous support and generosity of our donors and what they enable the foundation to do for our beloved community.
