Innis Maggiore Establishes Endowment with Stark Community Foundation

Innis Maggiore, the nation’s leading positioning agency, has delivered the first contribution to establish the Innis Maggiore Community Endowment Fund with Stark Community Foundation.

The Innis Maggiore Fund is set up to provide grants for organizations that lead initiatives for the good of the Stark County community. President and CEO Dick Maggiore has appointed a committee of Innis Maggiore associates to determine the parameters for who may apply for the grants and how grant decisions will be made.

“We are privileged to work and live in such a great community and feel strongly about doing all that we can to continuously improve the quality of life here,” Maggiore said. Innis Maggiore’s initial contribution was matched by Stark Community Foundation. The agency intends to make annual contributions and will announce grant guidelines when they are finalized.

“We are pleased to partner with Innis Maggiore in establishing and growing this community endowment, and appreciate the company’s decision to contribute. This new corporate donor advised fund is a testament to Innis Maggiore's continued commitment to addressing local needs and issues,” said Stark Community Foundation Vice President of Advancement Bridgette Neisel. “The philanthropy of individuals and companies here in our community is exemplary, one of the primary reasons the Stark Community Foundation is among the leaders in community foundations in the U.S. today.”
