Abstract: The Eva L. and Joseph M. Bruening Foundation was established in 1987 in Cleveland, Ohio, through the estate donations of Joseph M. Bruening and his wife Eva L. Bruening. It is an independent foundation which provides grants to agencies in the greater Cleveland, Ohio, area. The foundation's focus areas are education and social services, with an emphasis on care for the elderly, disabled, and disadvantaged. Proposals funded include those in the fields of early childhood education, primary and secondary education, higher education, domestic violence and child abuse prevention, human services, and children and youth services. Special consideration is given to Roman Catholic organizations and institutions that provide these types of programs and services. Joseph M. Bruening founded the Ohio Ball Bearing Company in Cleveland in 1923, later known as Bearings Inc. The collection consists of agendas, budgets, correspondence, financial statements, grant proposals, memoranda with attachments, minutes, newspaper clippings, photographs, press releases, publications, reports, and trust disbursement authorizations.
