Giving: You and Greater Cincinnati Foundation

Established by dedicated donors in 1963, Greater Cincinnati Foundation strives to inspire investing in a more vibrant and prosperous Greater Cincinnati where everyone can thrive.

Work with GCF to realize your charitable goals

Thanks to the generosity of donors, GCF is a permanent charitable resource for our community and a flexible, tax-advantaged giving tool for now or after your lifetime. You can make gifts to carry out almost any charitable goal. Donations can be made with cash, stock and even assets like real estate or life insurance.

We exist to leverage your generosity into solutions to our region’s problems."

How does it work?

Our Governing Board, along with experts from the community, manages funds by investing wisely to ensure the assets are protected and grow over time. GCF has net assets of more than $500 million, putting your community foundation among the largest in the U.S.

Where does the money go?

GCF can make investments across our region through grants and community leadership activities because of your generosity. You can give here in the region or in other communities close to your heart. Donors grant millions of dollars every year from donor advised funds to causes you care about.

Investing in Greater Cincinnati

Grants are also made from the Foundation’s Community Funds. These assets were given by donors who have entrusted their legacies to GCF. The Foundation can do its work in the community because of these generous individuals.

Thanks to its donors, GCF’s Governing Board works to help ensure a prosperous Greater Cincinnati region by investing in thriving people and vibrant places.
