WINTER 2020
Join the Medina County Women’s Endowment Fund for Seasons of Giving on Thursday, June 11 at Blue Heron Event Center in Medina. Seasons of 
Giving celebrates philanthropy in the community and honors women who are outstanding role models for giving to others in Medina County. 
As part of our 2019 grant cycle, the Medina County Women’s Endowment Fund awarded $2,500 to Marian’s Closet to help provide new bedding for those in need. This funding will allow the store to purchase about 185 new sets of sheets and pillows to distribute to its customers.
The members of our advisory board join me in extending our heartfelt thanks for the many ways you contribute to the well-being of the women and children in our county. As we enter this new decade, our fund remains committed to our mission.
Through our Legacy Tree of Giving, a pledge of $1,000 or more a year can help us continue our growth and commitment to women and children in Medina County. Members receive several benefits, including recognition in MCWEF’s marketing/event materials, advance communication about fund news and opportunities to participate in fund activities.
Thank you to the generous donors who contributed to the Medina County Women's Endowment Fund from July 1 to Dec. 31, 2019. Your gifts will impact the lives of women and children in Medina County for years to come. For a complete list of donors, visit www.akroncf.org/MCWEFgifts .
