The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Canton

The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Canton is committed to addressing the needs of the poor and underserved by understanding the root causes of poverty, nurturing the growth of healthy communities, emphasizing youth and family, and measuring the outcomes of these efforts. The Foundation primarily serves Stark County, Ohio. However, requests are considered from Carroll, Holmes, Tuscarawas and Wayne counties in Ohio.

To remain responsive to community needs that align with the Sisters of Charity Foundation’s mission, we accept letter of inquiry forms through our online grantmaking portal on a rolling basis for our Responsive and Good Samaritan grants.
