You can count on us

Dear Friends,

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.

Meanwhile, at GCF we are following recommended precautions to do our part in ensuring the health and safety of all our stakeholders.

A couple of things you should know:

  • Staff will be working remotely: Effective Monday, March 16, GCF staff will work remotely. You will receive the same level of service as if we were in the office. Please contact us as you normally would.  Should you need contact information, please call us at 513-241-2880.
  • We are closing the Haile Community Hub: For the well-being of our guests, the community hub will be closed until April 30. If you had a meeting scheduled, you should have received an email about this change.

We are committed to serving you without disruption.  And we are committed to stepping up and forward for our entire community.

Thank you for your commitment to our region and those who need us most.
