Leading Together

By definition, a community foundation cannot be effective working alone or in isolation. Together with donors, volunteers, professional advisors, nonprofit organizations, and civic leaders, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation contributes significantly to making our region a more thriving and vibrant place.

 

Dear Friends,

Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation co-convened the Cultural Facilities Task Force, a collaborative effort that produced a comprehensive renovation and funding plan for both Union Terminal and Music Hall. 

By definition, a community foundation cannot be effective working alone or in isolation. 

Together with donors, volunteers, professional advisors, nonprofit organizations, and civic leaders, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) contributes significantly to making our region a more thriving and vibrant place. 

This year’s stories bring to life the power of partnership and the joy of working together. 

A donor’s passion for innovative philanthropy inspired his decision to co-invest in a loan to a nonprofit organization using GCF’s impact investment program

A couple’s dedication to education drew them to volunteer with a nonprofit group that partners with public schools to help kids achieve better student outcomes. 

In an amazing story of love for an adopted community, you’ll see how the aspirations of three transplants who joined forces with GCF are planning legacy gifts that will help the region forever. 

These personal stories are echoed in other ways across GCF’s broad community canvas. 

For example, the trustees of The Helen Steiner Rice Foundation tapped GCF a decade ago to partner with them in fulfilling the legacy of this prolific inspirational writer. 

And to help reduce high infant mortality rates in our region, GCF has supported Cradle Cincinnati — a team of funders, researchers, service providers, hospitals, government agencies, and staff working collectively to tackle the problem. 

We are pleased to welcome GCF’s new President/CEO, Ellen M. Katz, who will carry forward the Foundation’s important role as a community leader and the effective stewardship of assets entrusted to us. 

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work together.

Dianne M. Rosenberg 
Chair
