Our Racial Equity Approach
Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s Community Leadership is our community change strategy. Specifically, this is the area where GCF serves as a community leader by acting as a catalyzing force that creates a better future for all by addressing our region’s most critical or persistent challenges.
As a foundation – part of our mission is to build a community where everyone can thrive and fulfill their full potential. Racial equity is the overarching goal for our community leadership work because we believe that a racially equitable community is the ideal state for our region.
Now is the time to address the racial divide and we're doing so by targeting investments in the black community.
