THE CHAIRPERSON S MESSAGE This annual report is a deliberate departure from The Cleveland Foun­ dation’s reports of recent years. It is a more streamlined, much more concise, description of the Foun­ dation’s activities during the pre­ vious calendar year— and of the concerns and priorities which guide the Distribution Committee and its staff in grantmaking and other work. The increasing demands of recent years have led the Distribution Committee to develop, through an extended process of institutional self-examination, a strategic plan which provides a framework for making hard decisions when we are faced with competing projects and finite resources. That plan is now also helping us identify several large, strategic investments of time and grant monies that will help us carry out our core mission. In the essay that begins on the opposite page, we are announc­ ing the Foundation’s commitment of substantial dollars and staff involvement over the coming months to two large-scale initiatives we feel are critical to this community’s future. We believe that establishing these two initiatives now (with perhaps one or two more to follow) will be a timely contribution to the comeback momentum that has been building in Cleveland over the last seven or eight years. In the pages that follow, you will find an account of the past year’s grantmaking, which totaled

S22.2 million. These investments in our community were made pos­ sible by the generosity of hundreds of foresighted donors through the years and the wise stewardship of our trustee banks. Among the numerous newcomers to our family of donors this past year were the Junior League of Cleveland, which established an endowment to sup­ port children’s theater, and the McDonald Fund, a supporting organization established by Charles McDonald (formerly chair of the Council of Smaller Enterprises), which made its first grants in 1986. Increasingly, the Foundation has been encouraging donors to make gifts during their lifetimes. Last year new gifts totaled $6.3 million, of which two-thirds came from living donors. As of December 31, 1986, the combined assets of the Foundation and its seven sup­ porting organizations had a total market value of $427 million, making The Cleveland Foundation one of the three largest community trusts in the nation. We bid a bittersweet farewell to David G. Hill, who has completed 10 years of incomparable service on the Distribution Committee. His thoroughness and dedication will be sorely missed. And we welcome the Rev. Elmo A. Bean, a distin­ guished community leader, who takes Dave’s place on the Committee as we prepare to meet the many challenges ahead.

COMMITTING TO THEFUTURE t is clear to any observer ofthis community that Cleveland and


Northeast Ohio have experienced, indeed suffered, someprofound and disheartening changes in the last 20years: the heavy loss of

manufacturingjobs (and with them a significantpart ofthe area's tradi­ tional economic base) and the loss ofpopulation (and with it an adequate tax base tofund city services). At the same time, there has arisen the disturbing feeling that everything around us—from the houses on many ofCleveland’s older residential streets to the very machinery ofpassing on our shared values and the tools ofsuccess, our schools—was crumbling.

the very recentpast something else has been emergingjust as clearly: a new sense ofdetermination on thepart ofthis community that it is not going to he back and accept this grimfate. Neighborhood residents have come together, forming dozens ofcommunity-based, grassroots development corporations, to reclaim their deteriorating housing stock and set about rebuilding their neighborhoods.

New coalitions ofcivic, government and

corporate leaders haveformed behindseveral large-scaleprojectspromising to inject new life and new investment into downtown: the redevelopment of the lakefront and Flats/Warehouse District, the Tower City complex, Public and Playhouse squares, a new stadium and a major tourist magnet in the form ofa Rock and Roll Hall ofFame. And thefirst comprehensiveplan for the city’sphysical development since 1949, dubbed the Civic Vision, is being developedfor downtown and the neighborhoods.

panies, and the Greater Cleveland Roundtable, aforum bringing together

61 civic, corporate, labor and religious leaders to address crucialcommunity issues, are playing a more active role in shaping an agendafor progress. One seespromising signs ofa new willingness on thepart of business and civic groups to get involved in the challenging task ofhelping to upgrade the city’s school system, and new alliances areforming tofind solutions to theproblems ofracism and intolerance, particularly with regard to housing.

But over


hese are heartening developments indeed: signs that a demoralized community has decided to take control ofits destiny and has begun to shape itsfuture.

The Cleveland Foundation, too, has

been engaged in a rigorous reassessment ofthe role it can, and must, play in moving this purposeful civic agendaforward. While it remains a responsivefunder, open to a wide spectrum ofinnovative programs and projects, the Foundation has become increasingly convinced that if progress is going to be made on a number offronts, projects ofsufficient scale to make a real impact must be undertaken, and the necessaryfunding to accomplish them invested.

The Distribution Committee has, over the last

few years, made substantial investments in projects ofscale which werefelt to be important to thefuture ofthis community—such as Playhouse Square, Lexington Village and the revitalization ofthe basic sciences at Case Western Reserve University’s School ofMedicine. The importance oflarge-scale developmentprojects currently under way such as the lakefront and the Mid-Town Corridor is widely recognized, but there are also other types of efforts which are crucial to Cleveland'sfuture.

The Distribution Committee

concern, but, recognizing that it is onlypossible tofocus on a limited number for Cleveland’s of large initiatives at one time, the Committee has identified two areas that

are particularly ripefor major commitments. They are the Cleveland Pub­ lic Schools and the needfor increased investment in decent housing and neighborhood revitalization.

Indeed, The Cleveland Foundation has

already made substantial commitments ofstafftime and grant dollars to both— more than doubling itsfundingfor programs to strengthen the school system to SI million-plus in thepastyear and, recently, joining with a group oflocal and nationalfunders to create a $l-million pool offunds to help support the operating costs ofsix ofthe city's mostpromising neigh­ borhood development groups.

The casefor extraordinary investments

by The Cleveland Foundation in these two areas is simple and compelling. The long-term health ofthe region as a whole depends upon the vitality ofthe central city. We know that deteriorating or substandard housing a dearth ofsuitablejobs and services available nearby, and inadequatepublic schools drivefamilies with meansfrom the city and make it difficult to attract new residents. Both trends must be reversed.

If we are to be successful in

turning Cleveland around, moreover, we must deal with the realities of poverty and race. We know that withinfive years, one-third ofthepopula­ tion of Cuyahoga County and one-quarter ofthe metropolitan population will be members of racial minority groups. Poverty is already afact of life for one in five county residents, and, to a large degree, minorities and the

store frontage in nine neighborhoods.

or these reasons, the Distribution Committee of The Cleveland Foundation has decided to commit as much as $10 million over the next three tofive years, over and above the Foundation’s normal responsive grantmaking to large-scale initiatives in the areas of public school education and neighborhood revitalization within the city of Cleveland.

Whatform might this investment in thefuture of Cleveland

take? Over the next severalyears, the Foundation will seek ways to support the system's and community’s efforts to increase the number ofgraduates and the quality of the diploma. Specifically, these might include projects developed by the school system and other entities to ease the transition to work or college; to attract, retain and support superior teachers and administrators; and to apply the best ofthe available research on effective urban schools.

The Foundation is similarly prepared to support expanded

efforts in the areas ofhousing rehabilitation, new home construction and the revitalization of neighborhood commercial and industrial areas. Nor will support be limited to thoseprograms and projects already under way. The Foundation will continue to explore, in conjunction with otherpotential funders and community groups, what other mechanisms are needed to stimulate and sustain neighborhood regeneration efforts.

The Distribu­

tion Committee is currently engaged in theprocess ofidentifying other areas in which The ClevelandFoundation will be making a greatly increased financial commitment. In these endeavors, the Foundation will actively seek theparticipation ofthe manyphilanthropies, corporations and agencies with which it has enjoyedproductive and satisfyingpartnerships in the past—and hopes to attract some newpartners as well.

A time ofextra­

ordinary opportunity is at hand. It asksfor bold and decisive action, a willingness toput aside minor differences, to make the necessary investment, and to get on with the task ofshaping Greater Cleveland’sfuture.

THE DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE The five individuals pictured on the cover of this year’s report are part of a new wave of optimism and commitment whose impact is beginning to be felt on many fronts in Greater Cleveland. All represent efforts which are being funded in part by The Cleveland Foundation. In short, they are some of our partners in the work of shaping Greater Cleveland’s future. At far left is Father Marino Frascati, president of the DetroitShoreway Community Development Organization, a nonprofit neigh­ borhood development corporation that is currently renovating 79 housing units, upgrading 30,000 square feet of commercial space and converting an old school building to a medical services facility. Next to Father Frascati is Peggy Murphy, the dynamic director of Mid-Town Corridor, Inc., a model of corporate involvement and public-private sector cooperation that is transforming a one-squaremile area straddling the city’s central corridor. Looking over her shoulder is Ralph Tyler, executive director of the Greater Cleveland Roundtable, who is coordinating the efforts of that cross-section of community leaders to come to grips with the difficult issues of race relations and the role of the community in improving public education.

Front row center is the Junior League’s Renee Snow, who led the effort to develop a children’s theater series at Playhouse Square and then a permanent endowment for children’s theater with The Cleve­ land Foundation. At far right, finally, is Rojeana Howell, a fifth-grade teacher with the Cleveland Public Schools who used a §175 small grant from The Cleveland Education Fund to set all 27 members of her class at Marion Sterling Elementary School to reassembling (and iden­ tifying) the tiny undigested skeletons of mice and other creatures on which some owl had dined. Ms. Howell exemplifies the kind of creativity and dedication in the class­ room (she had previously paid for such projects out of her own pocket) that prompts children written off by the more cynical to begin talking excitedly about becoming scientists. To me, these five persons are a reminder that what is always found behind the most successful of the many programs listed in the pages that follow— and what The Cleveland Foundation ultimately is investing in— is people: their ideas, their energy, their commitment, their imagination. For if this com­ munity is going to have a future marked by opportunity and grace, it first has to be imagined. And then it has to be invested in, with all of the resources, all of the com­ mitment, all of the energy we have. It is my privilege to work with a Distribution Committee and profes­ sional staff who share this vision.

Police response to citizen calls for help is, for many people, an important measure of how well local government serves a community. With more than 700,000 calls pouring in to the switchboard annually, it is no surprise that Cleveland Police have a hard time meeting everyone’s needs promptly. But a 1984 Cleveland Foundation grant to the Criminal Justice Institute of Cincinnati to analyze the situation and devise a more efficient system began paying off last summer. CJI had discovered that officers were being tied up as long as 45 minutes answering calls involving complaints of rowdy teenagers or filing reports on break-ins where the culprit was long gone. A number of CJI’s recommen­ dations, which grew out of an analysis of 14,200 calls, are already enabling officers to respond to 1,000 more calls a week. Among the innovations: a matrix of brief questions dispatchers can use to assess the urgency of the situation and the type of response needed, a telephone expediter unit which calls back the citizen if police will be delayed (many “ emergencies”

The enormous sums of money required to finance medical research and the development of huge teaching, research and health care institutions such as Cleveland boasts are clearly beyond the resources of a community foundation, even a very large one like The Cleveland Foundation. Im­ portant work at many local facilities is supported with funds left to the stewardship of the Foundation by donors who designated certain insti­ tutions, while other funds established with more flexible provisions make possible about $2.5 million annually in grants which can be put to more strategic uses. Thoughtfully placed, such grants can sometimes provide, like a nudge from a tiny tugboat put­ ting its shoulder to one of the great ore barges entering the Cuyahoga, the necessary leverage to help an impor­ tant institutional effort gain momen­ tum and the national funding required for its full implementation.

Strengthening the capacity of the Cleveland Public Schools to meet the educational needs of the city’s youth has become one of the top priorities of the Foundation. Whether it takes the form of The Cleveland Education Fund, an independent three-year-old entity created by The Cleveland Foun­ dation which raised 1336,000 on its own last year for innovative programs in collaboration with the Cleveland Public Schools, or the $300,000 grant that is currently helping to underwrite the school system’s own ambitious effort to recruit as many as 400 new teachers from around the country to replace faculty who have opted for early retirement, the Foundation is committing substantial staff time and grant dollars (over SI million in 1986) to this overriding issue.

A decade of faith on the part of The Cleveland Foundation in this commu­ nity’s willingness to strive for and support performing arts of a national caliber has been rewarded in the form of an extraordinary season marked by the highest standards of excellence. Cleveland Ballet this spring produced a breathtaking

Swan Lake— the clas­

sic measure of any ballet company— and using a three-year grant to com­ mission works by major American choreographers produced a new work by modern dance luminary Murray Louis. Cleveland Opera not only filled the seats for an increased number of performances, but demonstrated its commitment to persistent artistic growth with a musically and visually stunning

Tales of Hoffmann.


Great Lakes Theater Festival opened a season marked by consistent high quality with a sparkling revival of

Arsenic and Old Lace starring Jean Stapleton that went on to Broadway and a national tour.

Another Foun­

dation grant underwrote The Cleve­ land Orchestra’s performances of works by seven 20th-century North Ameri­ cans, from Roy Harris and Charles Ruggles to Samuel Barber and Leonard Bernstein, along with two weeks of memorable concerts under the baton of the internationally celebrated Pierre Boulez that included Cleveland pre­ mieres of three of his own composi­ tions.

The Greater Cleveland community faces two difficult challenges in the area of social services. The first is finding ways to keep vital agencies functioning as traditional sources of support continue to shrink. The second is mobilizing— and reconfiguring— existing resources to deal with a changing picture of human needs in Cuyahoga and adjacent counties. The growing number of youth at risk as a result of substance abuse, teen pregnancy, delinquency, poor preventive health care, abuse or neglect by adults; the increasing percentage of children living in nontraditional families or in poverty; the growing numbers of homeless and hungry and the chronically poor— all of these pose looming problems to a human services establishment largely designed to provide only temporary assistance, on the assumption that the traditional institutions such as family, schools and hospitals would take care of the rest.

mmr ECONOMIC 11P M DEVELOPMENT mw^am m*mmm ■ ■ ■ ■ ■

The variety of roles the Foundation plays is nowhere more evident than in the area of Economic Development, where the relatively modest dollars it can bring to bear could not begin to make up for the serious losses in heavy manufacturing and other in­ dustry suffered by Cleveland in recent years. Once again, as in other areas of grantmaking, it is a question of the strategic targeting of those dollars to key efforts— such as the develop­ ment of the Center for Regional Eco­ nomic Issues at Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management whose “ ripple effect” has the potential of multiplying their impact many times over. The Foun­ dation’s recent support of Cleveland Tomorrow’s study exploring the place of applied science research and edu­ cation in revitalizing the region’s economy is another example of the Foundation’s playing an educational role.

COMBINED FUNDS ombinedFunds were created ^

within The Cleveland Foun­ dation in 1943 toprovide a

means through which gifts ofany size could more inexpensively be administered. Several thousand donors have contributedto Combined Funds since their creation. Gifts retain their separate identity as memorials but are combinedfor in­ vestmentpurposes, therebyproviding a large block ofcapitalfor more efficient investment management and greater incomepotential. Gifts to a Combined Fund may be made in the name ofan individual or as memorials. There is no restric­ tion as to size, and additions may be made at any time. Donors are encouraged to make their gifts availablefor the charitable and educationalpurposes of Greater Cleveland, since this enables the Foundation to beflexible in meeting changing community needs and problems.

tions were affiliated with The Cleveland Foundation in

1986. These organizations have committed their assets to the benefit and charitablepurposes ofthe Foun­ dation and are classified under Section 509(aX3) ofthe Internal Revenue Code.

The trustees of The Sherwick Fund approve grants for a variety of educational, health, social services and cultural arts pro­ grams. In 1986, 69 grants were approved totaling $922,897.
