Curious about Our Name?

With our latest brandmark, we shortened Foundation in the typeset of the logo. But don't worry! We are still the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, which is how our name should appear in copy. Also we got rid of the capital "T" in "the" to make it easier to talk about us. If you have any questions, please reach out to or contact our Marketing Department at 513-241-2880.
