$5 Million Committed to Racial Justice

When we, the Governing Board of Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF), embraced racial equity as the core of our mission, we did so understanding that the road would be long.

You can count on us

You can count on us

We are your community foundation, and our role is to lead the way in addressing the region’s most critical needs. I can assure you, we’re on it. The COVID-19 pandemic will disproportionately affect our most vulnerable residents and the organizations that support them. Many of our neighbors will be forced to choose between their health, care for their children, food on the table, a roof over their heads, and more. As a community, we must step up. Mayor John Cranley has asked us to activate an emergency response fund in partnership with other funders, corporations, and individual donors like you. Early next week, we will let you know how you can help.

Seven Reasons to Vote for Issue 7

When you go to the polls in Hamilton County on Tuesday, March 17, we encourage you to support Issue 7 with a “Yes” vote. Issue 7 would replace Cincinnati’s 0.3 percent earnings tax with a 0.8 percent Hamilton County sales tax to reinvest in our transportation system, which is vital to promoting economic growth. The initiative will reinvest $130 million annually into improving our transportation system.
