When you donate to The Canton Student Loan Foundation, you help someone build his or her future.

The Foundation thrives because of the generosity of our donors. This, combined with wise investments, conservative stewardship of funds by our Board, and our borrowers' conscientious 99.8% repayment rate, has allowed us to award more than $43 million in student loans. Annually we help more than 1100 students achieve their educational goals.

Every contribution dollar to the Foundation goes to a student.  NO contribution is ever used for operating expenses. Interest covers all general operating expenses of the Foundation. Any additional interest supplements the revolving pool of loan funds. Your membership and contributions couldn't work harder for our deserving Stark County students.

The Canton Student Loan Foundation is very proud of our students' less than 1 percent default on all loan payback over the past 100 years of operations.

The Canton Student Loan Foundation is an Ohio non-profit corporation and a 501(c)(3) organization. We accept:

  • Cash gifts

  • Stocks, bonds, real estate or other property

  • Wills and bequests

  • Trusts and other planned gifts
