The Cleveland Courage Fund of the Cleveland Foundation was established by Cleveland council members Brian Cummins, Matt Zone, and Dona Brady in partnership with Channel 3 to benefit kidnapping survivors Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight, and Amanda Berry and her daughter.
100 percent of donations made to this fund will go to trust fundsto benefit the survivors and their families.
The Cleveland Foundation will not assess fees on this fund, so all money raised will go to help survivors and their families. Also, the Cleveland Foundation will issue a tax receipt for all donations received.
The Cleveland Courage Fund at Key Bank is a separate fund, not affiliated with the Cleveland Foundation. This fund, too, will benefit survivors and their families through nonprofit organizations. People can personally drop off donations at any Key branch in Northeast Ohio or nationwide.
For both accounts, the council members are working with other community leaders to identify nonprofit organizations that can provide the flexibility to maximize the benefits to survivors and their families.
