Racial Equity

When our community was shaken by civil unrest in April 2001, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation convened local funders to help address the crisis situation. Our commitment to equity and inclusion continues today, informing our grants and leadership in many sectors.

GCF's original support was to help fund and house the Mayor's commission Cincinnati Community Action Now (CAN). When CAN completed its work in 2003, a group of funders came together to provide leadership and resources to the most challenging community solutions that emerged from CAN’s research and planning. Under the umbrella of Better Together Cincinnati (BTC), the funders supported a number of initiatives in education, economic opportunity, and police-community relations.
