GCF NEXT Fund Cultivates Future Generosity

Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s NEXT Fund is engaging, empowering and mobilizing future generations of generosity. Young people who are passionate about our community can build a relationship with GCF in fun, informative ways through the NEXT Up signature series of events held throughout the year.

This month, GCF NEXT explored the Cradle-to-Career Pipeline at Revel OTR Urban Winery. The evening included a panel discussion, led by Lauren Jones of GCF’s Women’s Fund highlighting four regional organizations— Adventure Crew, Breakthrough Cincinnati and Lincoln Grant Scholar House — that are working to strengthen the cradle-to-career pipeline in creative ways.

If you’re inspired by the work of such organizations as these, the GCF NEXT Giving Circle is an effective way to amplify your support, with a minimum contribution of just $50. GCF will match each $50 contribution made through GCF NEXT; all GCF NEXT Giving Circle members will have the opportunity to choose the nonprofit receiving the 2019 grant at an event on Oct. 15.

Mark your calendar to join us on Tuesday, Sept. 17, to hear from organizations focused on Healthy Neighborhoods and Affordable Housing.
