The Greater Cincinnati Foundation is in a unique position to be able to connect people like you and me with purpose in a way that makes our collective impact so much stronger than anything we could accomplish alone.”

Your generosity is changing the future of our communities

GCF has worked to empower meaningful community efforts including: 

  • The Family Independence Initiative – providing our neighbors with financial and social capital to lift themselves out of poverty
  • All-in Cincinnati – an innovative, community-wide initiative to resolve persistent inequalities among our cities and neighborhoods, so we can all rise together
  • Music Hall renovation – a completely revitalized community treasure reopened for all to enjoy thanks, in part, to our ability to connect people with purpose

That’s what GCF is all about. Whether your passion as a donor is a more vibrant arts scene, raising healthier children, lifting families out of poverty—whatever your vision for creating stronger communities—that’s our mission.

Together with our donors, we’ve been a catalyst for meaningful change, but we could be making an even greater impact on our region. This is the promise and the potential of our new Empowering Communities Annual Fund.
