Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank logo

The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank was formed in 1982 by a group of community leaders who made a commitment to provide emergency food to our neighbors in need.

University of Akron logo

The University of Akron -- one of the top public universities in Ohio and the nation -- is focused on innovation, entrepreneurship and economic growth. We partner with the University in a variety of ways. Our involvement began with helping to fund the John R. and Dr. Sarah A. Adams Honors College Amphitheatre and the Mr. John R. and Dr. Sarah A. Adams speaker series at the Honors College. It has expanded to include involvement with the College of Business Advancement Council, whose objective is to effect a close working relationship between business and management leaders in the greater Akron community, State of Ohio and the Nation and the faculty and students of the College.

Finally, in 2019 our firm started its own Financial Planning Internship Program, accepting one junior or senior Financial Planning student to learn firsthand about comprehensive planning, team integration and superior client service. We have future plans to establish a scholarship program for a Financial Planning student to help promote diversity and growth in our profession.

Dancing for the Kids logo

This is our second year as the Title Sponsor for Dancing for the Kids, which is the Emerging Leaders Board at Akron Children's Hospital's signature event. The first event was held in 2012. Dancing for the Kids features nine local "celebrities" who put on their dancing shoes to help raise money for Akron Children's Hospital's Showers Family Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders.

The concept is similar to the Dancing with the Stars television show. The event partners with The University of Akron's dance program to match each participant with a dance student. Together the dancers and their partners come up with the music and a routine. The performance is held at the Akron Civic Theatre each fall where more than 700 people enjoy an evening hosted by Keith Kennedy.
