Raffle Total


Each year the Foundation Raffle raises over $100,000. 100% of the proceeds go to advocacy efforts geared toward influencing public policy for the betterment of the lives of older adults. Our goal this year was $175,000- one of our largest goals yet. However, this also comes at a time where advocacy work is crucial. The lives of many older adults have drastically changed in the past few years, and so have the environments they need to receive proper care. Donations, sponsorships, raffle tickets, and other contributions to the Direction Home Akron Canton Foundation in 2022 have never been needed more.

We are proud to say that this year’s Raffle has raised a total of $178,700 for advocacy efforts! Thank you to all who bought and sold tickets, donated, sponsored, and aligned values with ours to help us contribute to our Agency mission and vision. Finally, congratulations to our lucky winners from our 2022 Foundation Raffle Drawing.
