Fund for Our Economic Future

Fund for Our Economic Future

The Fund for Our Economic Future is a collaboration of philanthropic organizations and individuals that have united to strengthen the economic competitiveness of Northeast Ohio through grantmaking, research and civic engagement.

Begun in 2004, the mission of the Fund is to encourage and advance a regional competitiveness agenda which will lead to long-term economic revitalization that strengthens our region’s core cities, encourages inclusion and enhances the region’s quality of life.

The Fund works with partners in Advance Northeast Ohio, the region's economic action plan, to develop and implement regional strategies that address four key priority areas:
Business growth and attraction
Talent development
Growth through racial and economic inclusion
Government collaboration and efficiency
