Give to Your Community

For more than a century, the Cleveland Foundation has partnered with our donors to improve the lives of residents in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties. Make a difference by giving to your community foundation.

City of Cleveland Neighborhood Safety Fund


The $10 million fund is housed at the Cleveland Foundation and was seeded with American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) money from the City. The fund will provide grants for community-driven, evidence-informed programming serving Cleveland residents that address the root causes of violence under the guidance of a nine-person advisory committee. Through a public Request for Proposals (RFP) process, this group recommended its initial round of grant funding Dec. 20, 2023 to nonprofits and/or government agencies working to enhance safety across the city.
