CINCINNATI (June 23, 2015) –  The Greater Cincinnati Foundation's Governing Board recently approved $2 million in grants in its second quarter. 

Thanks to the Foundation’s generous donors, it is able to support needs identified by the region’s nonprofit sector and support thriving people and vibrant places. 

Last year, the Foundation awarded more than $77 million in grants.

Here are some of the highlights from GCF’s recent grants in its seven community investment focus areas:

GCF also made a number of small grants. This included a $30,000 grant to the Withrow Dental Center, a grant partnership with donors. 

"We were excited to partner with GCF to help with start-up funds for the Withrow Dental Center,” said GCF donors Flip and Shelia Cohen. “The center represents an impressive collaboration between the City of Cincinnati, Withrow High School and multiple corporate and donor supporters. Most importantly, the clinic serves a huge need in providing first-time access to dental services. It educates the students on preventive care and helps them advocate for themselves. In this new state of the art dental clinic teeth are being cleaned and repaired, as well as creating student confidence."

"We decided to partner with GCF to support Withrow Dental Center because it is an innovative healthcare solution that has been proven successful, and clearly will have a positive impact on the health and well-being of Withrow students and the surrounding community, who are also permitted to use the clinic," said donors Jeff and Heather Spanbauer.   

Thank you to the volunteers of our Community Investment Committee for all your hard work.
