The Greater Cincinnati Foundation uses impact investing to tie the discipline of the market with the social mission of philanthropy. These investments use charitable assets to invest in projects that can generate revenue as well as direct community benefits.
Leverage Your Giving Now
Through your donor advised fund, you can now partner with GCF to jump-start projects key to our community’s vitality. Together, our charitable funds can leverage non-charitable financial support from other foundations, financial institutions, and private investors.
Join an exclusive group of donors to invest in local projects that will make our community a more vibrant place to live and work, creating more opportunity for everyone while “recycling” your charitable capital to use with other projects. It’s an alternative to investing in the stock market that directly benefits our community.
