financial support

Summer on the Cuyahoga is an Ohio nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation for which your contributions are tax-deductible. Please consider a gift in the following amounts that reflect the cost of successfully executing this program:

  • Sponsorship of a student $1,000
  • Housing for an intern for half the summer $450
  • Summer event expense for an intern $350

This program is also generously supported by a number of Cleveland's family, community and corporate foundations.


We invite alumni to be hosts to the students during the summer. The intent is that the alumni be a resource to the student regarding life after college and life in Greater Cleveland. In many cases, the relationship continues beyond the summer experience, thereby keeping the student connected to the region and the alumni connected to current life on campus.
