Laura Fink is Director of Development at Akron Community Foundation.  Laura joined the staff in October of 2011.  As director of development, Laura meets with current and potential fundholders to discover their philanthropic passions and show them how they can do great things through the community foundation. She also leads the professional advisory committee made up of wealth managers, trust officers, attorneys and accountants to increase the exposure of ACF and create giving opportunities that are simple and accessible for fundholders. 

Laura’s favorite thing about Akron Community Foundation is the people
she meets. Laura loves hearing fundholders’ stories – where they came from, what motivates them, and the positive impact giving has made on their lives.


Laura’s entire professional career has been in development – for both corporate and nonprofit organizations. Prior to joining the community foundation, Laura was the director of development for the Akron Symphony, where she managed all annual fund giving, corporate sponsorships, special events and grant writing.  Laura is an outdoor enthusiastic and avid cyclist. She’s a 1987 graduate of the College of Wooster and lives in west Akron with her family.
