Two charitable funds serving Medina County awarded a combined $41,900 in grants on Friday, June 8, 2012. The Medina County Community Fund and the Medina County Women’s Endowment Fund, both affiliates of Akron Community Foundation, issued grants to twenty-one nonprofits this year, bringing their total distributions to more than $450,000.
