News & Event
Greater Cincinnati Foundation adopted changes in 2017 to our grantmaking process to allow us to better serve the nonprofit community while aligning with GCF’s focus on building an equitable community. Funding opportunities are offered throughout the year with purposes steered by the giving goals of our generous donors, past and present.
GCF offers quarterly Request for Proposal (RFP) cycles as well as leverages our partners to offer more opportunities for support. Our partner private foundations, the Women’s Fund and HealthPath offer application cycles throughout the year aligned to their individual focus areas.
As we look ahead to 2019, we encourage you to mark your calendars for key RFP and Letter of Intent (LOI) dates*:
