Strong Families. Strong Community.

FIRC empowers families with the education and support needed to thrive and remain living and working in Summit County.

In most communities, FIRC would be 5 separate nonprofits. Fortunately for Summit County families, we are a comprehensive one-stop agency.

All services are designed to strengthen families, resulting in stronger parents, children, employees and community.

Planned Giving

Support a legacy to building stronger families and a stronger community. Please consider FIRC in your estate or legacy plans through a will, trust, retirement plan, life insurance policy or life income gift.

We encourage you to setup a meeting with our Executive Director to discuss how your gift can support FIRC.

A bequest is a gift you make to FIRC through your will or trust which indicates your desire to leave something of value toward FIRC’s future work.  A charitable bequest can be a specific dollar amount or a percentage of the value of your total estate, a gift of stock or life insurance, or even a gift from an IRA or other qualified retirement plan. Because these assets often carry a heavy income tax obligation to your heirs, they can be a particularly attractive source for funding your charitable gifts.
