Connecting People with Purpose

Individuals, Families and Businesses

Whether you’re a seasoned donor or just getting started, we help you discover the right charitable plan so your generosity can reach its full potential.

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.
