Community foundations, such as the Tallmadge Foundation, are tax-exempt charities organized as collections of individual funds. Unique among charitable organizations, community foundations are experts in both sides of the philanthropic exchange.
Serving our community since 2000
The Tallmadge Foundation became a reality in the Fall of 2000. A small group of Tallmadge residents established the Foundation for the purpose of fostering, enhancing and supporting educational, cultural and recreational enrichment for the community of Tallmadge. The Foundation would provide a vehicle to fund programs and projects where initiatives would come from community-based civic organizations, the local schools, local government and even individuals. These initiatives could include learning opportunities, cultural programs, development seminars, workshops and skill development. The Foundation’s avenues of funding are open through grants and partnering with organizations and individuals in the community.
