The year 2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the Cleveland-based regional office of Foundation Center. To commemorate forty years of service, promotion of philanthropy, and impact, Foundation Center Midwest has created an anniversary series. Embracing the theme of "Doing Good Better," our 40th anniversary allows us to mark the occasion by spreading the news through Storytelling, Special Events, and Scholarships to expand the value of philanthropy locally and support our community in doing good better.

Foundation Center Midwest has come to be recognized as the premier Midwestern resource for comprehensive data, training, and insights on the social sector. Our support has provided thousands of non-profit professionals, grant seekers, and the philanthropic organizations that fund them tools to meet community need, strengthen the social sector, and be a catalyst for social change.
