Major Gifts to Akron Children's

Major Gifts

When you make a major gift, you can change the course of pediatric care and research, saving countless children's lives. A major gift gives you the opportunity to make a difference for children and meet like-minded donors and doctors working toward the same goal.

As you decide how to designate your major gift, Akron Children's Foundation staff is here to assist. We can help you explore how your generosity can benefit our patient care programs, purchase the latest equipment to care for our patients, fund research to find tomorrow’s cures or support a passion that is meaningful to you.

Our principal giving team also can explain the various gift options, including stock transfers and planned gifts.


Marketable securities (including stocks, mutual funds and certain bonds) may help you make a larger gift at less cost. Please direct stock transfers to our account at FirstMerit. The information you need is listed below, along with our contact.

Planned Giving

Planned giving is a way for you to provide donations to Akron Children’s in a manner that is tax preferred to you and your estate. What sets planned giving apart from a regular charitable contribution is that the actual contribution occurs some time in the future. We can help you decide how and when that contribution will be made. Learn more the many planned giving opportunities available to you.
