Enjoy the View

Welcome to the Cleveland Yearbook! We’re so happy to see you. The Cleveland Foundation has worked for more than 100 years with our donors and partners to help our city grow from the ground up. We love this city so much we climbed atop the Terminal Tower to get a better view. Check out the panoramic photo below to scroll and zoom your way across Cleveland.

Making Cleveland Great

If you care about Cleveland, you’ve come to the right place. Think of the Cleveland Yearbook as a way to meet just a few of the people and organizations we’re so proud to support. In 2014, the Cleveland Foundation distributed a record $98 million toward projects, people, and places in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga Counties. To date in 2015, we have granted out more than $74.7 million. We provide funding in response to community needs, and we also focus our leadership and expertise on five priority areas, which you can see below:
