2020 Gift Guide: Non-Profits & Memberships in Akron, Ohio

The Memberships and Non-Profits Gift Guide features organizations in Akron and Northeast Ohio who are doing amazing work in our communities. From helping those who are food insecure or houseless, to providing music education and saving wildlife, there is surely one that will resonate with you.

Buying memberships to museums and local institutions will support their efforts to educate the public on local history, the arts, community news and more. In lieu of giving a physical gift this year, consider donating to a non-profit in someone’s name or gifting a membership.

Visit the websites for these organizations to find additional ways to support them: donating products, visiting, purchasing merchandise, etc. These organizations have all been selected by the Everyday Akron community. If you support them, share on social media and be sure to tag @everydayakron and the business! We all want to see how you’re spreading the holiday cheer.

Give the gift of summer camp for the holidays!!! @campynoah is an amazing experience to give kids aged 6-17, both for overnight and day camp. Rather than give your kids a toy they’ll be bored with in a month, give them an experience they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.
