An Inspirational Evening with the Daltons and Bob Coughlin

CINCINNATI (September 28, 2016) - The Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s donors and professional advisors spent an inspirational evening with Andy and Jordan Dalton and Bob Coughlin. 

The Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s donors and professional advisors spent an inspirational evening with Andy and Jordan Dalton and Bob Coughlin. 

Newcomers to philanthropy, Andy and Jordan Dalton spoke about the importance of giving back in our community and the work they are doing in the community through their nonprofit organization.

In a league of his own when it comes to community generosity, Bob Coughlin, founder and CEO of Paycor and founder of the Flying Pig Marathon, inspired us with his personal story for why he gives so generously to our community. Bob highlighted how The Greater Cincinnati Foundation has served as a partner in his charitable giving by accepting gifts of Paycor stock. According to Bob, having the ability to donate closely held stock to his charitable fund at the Foundation maximizes his ability to give back and has transformed his philanthropy.

“Setting up the GCF fund and using Paycor shares as one of the donations was meaningful,” Bob said. “It gave a charitable purpose to the business and further connected the business to the community. With GCF, you can rest assured that your funds will be able to make the greatest impact possible.”
