July 2, 2018

Covington, KY (July 20, 2018) — Adam Turer, an attorney at Lerner, Sampson & Rothfuss, received the Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s 2018 Emerging Philanthropist Award at Legacy’s Next Generation Leader Awards on July 19. Kent Wellington of Graydon presented the award to Turer, whom he nominated with the support of several other leaders of the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative’s Saturday Hoops program.

The Emerging Philanthropist Award recognizes a young leader who demonstrates a passionate desire to give back and make Greater Cincinnati a more vibrant and prosperous region where everyone can thrive. The recipient gives generously of his/her time, experience and resources for the benefit of our community – and inspires others to do the same.

GCF NEXT, the Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s new young professionals group, led the nomination and selection process for this award, which is sponsored by The Northern Kentucky Fund of GCF. The group focuses on the importance of engaging, empowering and mobilizing the next generation of generous leaders.

“The Emerging Philanthropist Award is a meaningful way to acknowledge the amazing power young professionals have in our community,” said Evie Epifano, program manager at GCF and GCF NEXT member. “Adam is an excellent candidate for this award.”

Turer is a founding member of the Lerner, Sampson & Rothfuss Community Service Committee, which organizes an annual community service fair and raises funds each month for local organizations like ProKids and the Reds Community Fund. He devotes his energy and enthusiasm to teaching sportsmanship and inspiring local youth to strive for greatness by serving as a mentor with the Cincinnati Youth Collaborative and as a leader of its Saturday Hoops, chairing the annual Dribblethon. Turer is the President of Anderson Township Youth Sports, the largest Little League baseball organization in southwest Ohio and he helps run a developmental basketball league at Summit Elementary, his and his son’s alma mater. Turer also has served as emcee at the ReelAbilities Film Festival and local high schools’ athletic department fundraisers.

“GCF is proud to partner with Legacy and this event to celebrate the tremendous community contributions of our next-gen leaders,” said Philanthropy Advisor Laura Menge, who helps manage The Northern Kentucky Fund
