As a Supporter

Since its inception, Leadership Akron has relied upon the broad support of the community to provide the means for participants to further develop their knowledge about the community and to expand their leadership skills. Our programs wouldn’t be possible without the support from foundations, local businesses and individuals. Please consider giving your time, talent and treasure to support our mission and the work of Leadership Akron.
