Local generosity sets a new record

CINCINNATI (January 13, 2016) — Thanks to the generosity of thousands of individuals, families, and companies, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) had a record-breaking year. The Foundation was entrusted with more than $100 million in gifts in 2015.

“It’s an extraordinary result,” said President/CEO Ellen M. Katz, who took the helm of the Foundation in May. “It’s another example of the incredible generosity of this region and its long heritage of giving and volunteering.”

GCF is a partner in achieving people’s own charitable goals. Gifts to the Foundation help specific organizations or projects and benefit the community forever through GCF’s community grants. Some gifts are invested immediately in the community, and some added to endowments to provide charitable resources for years to come.

The impact of these gifts on our region is widespread and long-term. Hundreds of nonprofit organizations, schools, and faith communities benefit from the investment of millions of dollars to help carry out their missions. 

The Foundation’s previous high was $85 million in 2014.
