PROCTER & GAMBLE
The Procter & Gamble Company has partnered with GCF for its corporate charitable giving since 2007. GCF handles the day-to-day administration, and P&G oversees all philanthropic and grantmaking strategies as well as recommendations for all funding. Over the years, the relationship has expanding to include special initiatives like the P&G Take on Race Fund and specific brand’s philanthropic strategies, like Tide Loads of Hope.
In 2022, GE Aviation reignited the distribution of eight high school graduate student scholarships from the Greater Cincinnati African American Scholarship Fund (GCAASF), administered by the GCF. GE partnered with Procter & Gamble and other local companies in 2002 to create the GCAASF. The fund originally awarded scholarships to more than 230 local students at 83 different universities between 2002 and 2014.
