"The Summit Foundation is the 'fabric of our community,' weaving together our people and organizations to solve problems and make Summit County even greater than it already is." Steve and Trish Shapiro, Summit Foundation donors

"In these uncertain times, many of us have chosen to focus on local issues that we feel we can influence. The issues of the high cost of health care, housing, childcare and protecting our Summit County way of life have never been more important than they are now. Those of us who work in the nonprofit community and spend our time working on these issues feel incredibly fortunate to have the support and guidance of The Summit Foundation. Their impact is often too large to quantify....if you're considering a donation to The Summit Foundation, we hope you realize the impact that your gifts have on our community."
