On July 1, 2012, as part of the merger between Kent State University and the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, the OCPM Foundation was established for charitable and educational purposes. The Foundation is operating as a 501c (3) private foundation. In 2019, this foundation is now doing business as The Podiatry Foundation, which promotes and fosters podiatric medical education and research by awarding grants supporting projects related exclusively to podiatric medicine.

The Podiatry Foundation is governed by a board of trustees whose main purpose is to preserve the financial stability of the foundation and manage the assets. Should it ever become necessary, these assets will be used to reinstitute a college of podiatric medicine in Northeast Ohio. The Podiatry Foundation Board of Trustees plays an important role in approving grants. They fully support and are committed to awarding annual funds related to projects that will enhance the future of podiatric medical education and research.

The Podiatry Foundation’s purpose is to serve and nurture podiatric medicine, education, and research. The Podiatry Foundation has assisted many national, state, and local podiatric medical organizations, The Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine, as well as students and residents in the greater Cleveland area.
