Elizabeth Hine Cates
Polio as a young child and a fractured hip suffered as an adult imbued Elizabeth Hine Cates with empathy for children with disabilities. Born in 1878, her family included attorneys and industrialists prominent in local history. Her father was an attorney instrumental in organizing the Youngstown Sheet and Tube Company.
Mrs. Cates’ desire to provide assistance to disabled children combined with a tradition of giving instilled by her parents, led her to establish The Cecil Dwight and Elizabeth Woodruff Hine Memorial Fund in tribute to them. In her will, she directed that the income from her estate be used for “treatment of, care for and assistance to….” disabled children “in and around the City of Youngstown.” Since 1976, more than $40 million dollars has been invested in nonprofit agencies in the community who share this mission.
With priority placed on funding therapeutic services for children with medically diagnosed disabilities who reside in Youngstown and its vicinity, the Hine Fund Sub-Committee of The Youngstown Foundation meets quarterly to review proposals.

The Youngstown Foundation is the catalyst that connects the promise of a donor today with the potential of the community tomorrow.
