Cultural Facilities Task Force
In 2014, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation and The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation co-convened the Cultural Facilities Task Force, a collaborative effort that produced a comprehensive renovation and funding plan for Cincinnati's Union Terminal and Music Hall.
Thousands of individuals and families in our community reap the benefits each year of Music Hall and Union Terminal. These two cultural icons are not only beautiful architecturally but are hubs of education, economic, and artistic activity that help our region thrive.
As a co-convener of the Cultural Facilities Task Force (with the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation), GCF is dedicated to saving these two structures and all they have to offer.
