Greater Cincinnati Foundation can process your credit card gift to the P&G Alumni Foundation Fund. Please note that credit card transactions carry a fee, which will be deducted from the gift amount and the net proceeds added to the fund. Your tax deduction will still be the gross amount of the gift.
Contributions by Check or Money Order
You may contribute by check or money order, which must be made payable to "Greater Cincinnati Foundation" with the name of the P&G Alumni Foundation Fund on the memo line. Unfortunately, checks or money orders made out only to the name of the fund will not be accepted. Send to Greater Cincinnati Foundation, 720 E. Pete Rose Way, Suite 120, Cincinnati, Ohio, 45202 USA.
You may donate gifts of stock. Appreciated stock can be an advantageous gift. By contributing stock to the fund, you may avoid capital gains tax and receive the gift's full market value for tax purposes. Stock transfers normally take only a few days to process. Please notify Melissa Krabbe, Controller, at 513-768-6143 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org that you initiated a stock gift. This notice will ensure the gift reaches the appropriate fund at GCF. The date that the control of the stock is transferred is key to determining the tax deduction for the gift. It is the policy of Greater Cincinnati Foundation to sell all gifts of stock and add the net proceeds to the fund.
If you hold physical certificates, they need to be personally delivered to Greater Cincinnati Foundation. If the stock was issued in the name of the donor, the donor needs to sign a stock power for each certificate delivered. (It should be signed exactly as the stock is issued.) If the stock will be mailed, the certificate(s) should be mailed in an envelope separate from the stock powers. Please do not sign the back of a physical certificate.
Stock may be issued in the name of Greater Cincinnati Foundation and delivered to Greater Cincinnati Foundation, 720 E. Pete Rose Way, Suite 120, Cincinnati, OH 45202.
If the stock is held at a brokerage firm, Greater Cincinnati Foundation maintains an account at Charles Schwab for the purpose of facilitating stock gifts.

If you have a GCF donor advised fund, you can make a grant suggestion by using Donor Access, GCF's donor portal, or by your regular grant suggestion form.

- Use GCF's Tax ID or EIN #: 31-0669700. Alternatively, search / find charity using "Greater Cincinnati Foundation" and verify the Tax ID / EIN # matches.
- Designating the P&G Alumni Foundation Fund as the purpose of the grant is most often accomplished by using the "Comments" or "Create Your Own" section.
- Advise Marianne Iyer (ED @ firstname.lastname@example.org) of your grant suggestion including fund name, amount granted, date initiated, and donor name(s) if different from fund name.
Increase your impact by doubling or even tripling your donation to the P&G Alumni Foundation Fund. Please consult your company’s HR department to understand if your employer has an employee matching gifts program and how to secure a matching gift.
