Robert and Ruth Westheimer believed in the idea of a community foundation, and their family made a significant gift towards The Greater Cincinnati Foundation's first permanent home, a 6-story building at the corner of 4th and Elm, in 1999.

Known as the S.P. Nelson & Sons Building, it was built in 1919 and housed a mercantile warehouse, and later an interior design firm and the Northlich Stolley LaWarre advertising agency.

Turning a vacant building into an anchor of the historic Fourth Street neighborhood allowed The Greater Cincinnati Foundation to expand services to a growing number of donors, provide better services and resources to nonprofit organizations, host community gatherings, and provide space for a number of community initiatives.

The late Bob Westheimer provided dedicated leadership to GCF as an Associate Director and Governing Board member for more than 15 years. Bob also provided leadership to a host of other important community organizations, including United Way of Greater Cincinnati. He passed away in 1997.

Ruth Westheimer was an outstanding volunteer who received many honors and awards as testament to her importance to this community. She cared deeply about the causes nonprofit organizations represented, but she also cared deeply about the people who staffed them and valued her fellow volunteers. She passed away in 2009.

The Westheimer familyRuth and Bob were life partners in their commitment to this community. The Westheimer family believed that helping GCF secure a permanent home was a fitting testament to Bob’s commitment to the community and to the Foundation.

The Greater Cincinnati Foundation is honored to recognize the Westheimer family’s philanthropic and civic leadership.
