Ramona Hood


Inspiring a Legacy Through Family Giving

Born and raised in Akron and now living in Copley, Ramona Hood has worked for FedEx for 25 years. She rose through the corporation through many levels, from receptionist to director, eventually achieving the position of managing director for FedEx Truckload Brokerage, one of FedEx’s major business lines.

Hood was originally hired by Roberts Express (the company was taken over by FedEx in 2000) as a receptionist. Now, as a FedEx executive, she oversees more than 150 people and coordinates trucks that handle shipments of materials throughout North America.

Hood has used her 25 years of hard work and success, along with respected mentors, to inspire her two daughters, Mariah, 25, and Kayla, 14, to get involved in family giving. Recently, she set up a charitable fund at Akron Community Foundation in her family’s name to engage her girls in all they can do for their community.

Hood has a long history of supporting nonprofits and serving on community boards to support their needs, including Summit Education Initiative, Court Appointed Special Advocates and Summit County Red Cross.

She has used this involvement to continue the support system for her children. “We will have family conversations about where to give,” she says. “It (conversations about choosing grants) has allowed me to bring my children more intimately into my involvement and what nonprofits we have in our community.”

Hood is building a strong philanthropic foundation for her children and stresses three areas for her children to contribute to: grants for women in leadership, underprivileged children and education.

She and her children, she says, choose grants based on those preferred causes through family meetings—some at home as a family, some with the help of Akron Community Foundation staff. It’s part of what the community foundation offers all its fundholders.

As a mother who wants to inspire her children to give back to the community they live in, she has taught her daughters to give back to local charities. She makes sure that they discuss where their investment returns to and the impact their investment will have on those charities.

“For the last few years, I’ve involved my time and talents in the community, but wanted to give that (back) to my kids,” Hood says. “Our legacy, philanthropy, is to keep thriving. The list (of charities) will grow beyond children; we will have family meetings, and my children will be involved in the community.”—CS
