Cafaro Foundation Gives $50K to Akron Children’s

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The Cafaro Foundation has awarded a grant of $50,000 to Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley as part of its ongoing mission to improve the quality of health care in the region.

The gift is directed to the hospital’s Vision for Our Valley’s Children campaign, which launched on the fifth anniversary of the opening of the hospital’s Beeghly campus.

To date, the campaign has raised $17.4 million toward its goal of $25 million by 2020. All funds raised go toward supporting focus areas of basic annual needs, facility and campus improvements, people and programs, and legacy and endowment.

“We are very grateful for the generosity of the Cafaro Foundation and deeply appreciate the support that they’ve shown for our mission in the Valley,” said JoAnn Stock, Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley senior director of development, in a statement.
