Summit County's picturesque views and amazing outdoor activities have attracted people for decades. And, ever since the first visitors arrived, there has been a debate over how to define a "local." To us, the definition comes from the culture of our community. It's a culture of caring for one another, giving back, and getting involved. The Local title is not given for an address but an attitude. So whether you have been here a day or a lifetime, if you are ready to impact the community you love, we can help.

The Summit Foundation is the trusted local community foundation providing leadership and resources to enrich the lives of the people in the communities we serve. Our great work is made possible by the generosity of the people and partners who give back and get involved.
