George Gund II

Watch Video

Well remembered today as the founder of The George Gund Foundation, his contributions of time and counsel are as much an enduring legacy of George Gund as his financial support. Throughout his lifetime, his career included banking, real estate, animal husbandry, and ranching. The George Gund Endowment Fund at CPH was established in 1948, the revenue from which was used for CPH’s Visiting Artists Fund. In 1952, he established The George Gund Foundation, which utilized a corporate foundation structure to provide creative solutions to social issues through the thorough review of proposals and disbursement of funds. He was a member of the Cleveland Play House Board from 1949 to 1966 and the Cleveland Play House Foundation Board from 1964 to 1966. The impact of George Gund’s accomplishments and philanthropic endeavors is still felt today by Cleveland Play House and the multitude of organizations who have benefited from his foresight, business acumen, and generosity.
