A Family of Givers

Rich Boehne described it as “voluntary redistribution.” He and his wife, Lisa, find it natural to share what they have with their community.” Both of us are from blue-collar families, we’re first-generation college-educated,” he said.

Rich and Lisa BoehneRich Boehne described it as “voluntary redistribution.” He and his wife, Lisa, find it natural to share what they have with their community.” Both of us are from blue-collar families, we’re first-generation college-educated,” he said. “Somehow I ended up the vice president of a company. (Boehne is President and CEO of The E.W. Scripps Company.) We give back because you should.”

As Northern Kentucky residents, the Boehnes said they focus on ”our side of the river.” They also use their donor advised fund at GCF to benefit faith-based organizations that provide basic human needs.

“We give to a lot of small churches and organizations that are struggling,” Lisa said.

“The larger organizations are so good at raising money and so many small ones don’t have the means,” Rich added. “We try to find those that are off the general radar screen. We can help them do something specific.”

The Boehnes’ teenage sons have taken their example to heart. Jake and Luke, 15 and 18, are active volunteers. Both boys worked at a Mexican orphanage with their youth group. Jake tutors students at Highlands High School. Luke’s classmates call him for advice on where to do community service hours. When asked what they wanted for Christmas, both boys chose to sponsor children with AIDS in Africa.

“They really are givers,” Lisa said.

The Boehnes encourage their sons to volunteer at some of the organizations the family supports financially. The boys have worked at New Hope Street Ministry in Newport, the Isaiah Project of Highland Hills Baptist Church and the Freestore Foodbank in Cincinnati. The Boehnes believe it’s important that children growing up in suburbia be exposed to what they might not see otherwise.

In the future, Jake and Luke will be encouraged to give to their favorite charities using the family fund at GCF.

”We believe you should give back and GCF makes it easy,” Lisa said.

The Boehnes established a donor advised fund in 2001 and in 2004, set up a field of interest fund for Northern Kentucky.
