The Emerging Philanthropist Award recognizes a young leader who demonstrates a passionate desire to give back and make Greater Cincinnati a more vibrant and prosperous region where everyone can thrive. The recipients give generously of their time, experience and resources for the benefit of our community - and inspire others to do the same.

“For all the ways in which she leads, serves, and contributes to this community, Clare merits recognition,” said Laura Menge, Giving Strategies Officer at The Greater Cincinnati Foundation. “Strongly committed and deeply kind, she sets the pace and motivates the rest of us to join in.”

Blankemeyer was selected for her deep involvement in our community and for the many ways in which she encourages philanthropy and service.

Started in Cincinnati 15 years ago, Impact 100 now has chapters across the country.

In 2015, Blankemeyer helped Impact 100 pilot a Young Philanthropist Program. This program has successfully introduced more young professionals to the rewarding experience of engaged philanthropy and the power of collective giving. 

Among Blankemeyer’s numerous community leadership roles are the GreenLight Fund Advisory Committee, Securing the Future Conference Committee, Rotary Club Jefferson Award Committee, St. Francis de Sales Parish Council, and YWCA Rising Stars. She serves on the Boards of the Cincinnati Association of Volunteer Administrators, Girl Scouts of Western Ohio Gold Award, and St. Francis Seraph Ministries. And she volunteers annually for The Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s Grants for Kids program.
