About Us

The Canton Student Loan Foundation provides low-interest student loans for Stark County graduates. Our founders wanted to make earning a degree a reality for local students. Today, our donors, Board members and staff carry on this tradition by developing, maintaining and loaning a revolving pool of funds. As students pay back their loans, these funds go back into the pool. We loan these funds again, and the work of the Foundation continues.

The Foundation is under the conscientious oversight of our dedicated Board members. Our staff, Kimberly  Leggett, executive director, and executive assistants Sandy Hartsel and Lori Lapp, guide applicants and recipients through the loan process.
