The Bruening Foundation

We are an effective grantmaking foundation that measures success by the positive impact our invested dollars have on human lives in Cuyahoga County, both now and for generations to come. Our results depend on the efforts of our grantees in both our proactive and responsive grantmaking. Together, we increase our human potential by investing in efforts to circumvent the negative and cascading effects of poverty and to elevate the overall quality of life in our region.

Our Mission

To fund crucial efforts today that help every child in Cuyahoga County grow into adulthood with health, wellness and dignity.
