Who We Serve

We believe we were all created for community. We believe community is a calling to serve others. It’s a place where we strip away our own self-interests to share what we have been given. It is here that we can be ambassadors of love. In community, we build relationships through trust, Collaboration, and accountability.

Our Charitable Community Partners are one way we choose to share our gifts and resources. Whether it be through awards of affirmation, volunteering our time, or simply lending a hand in times of need, we respond to them as part of our community.

Please take a moment to read more about each of our partnerships below, and why we feel called to serve them.

Our newest charitable partner has taken greater Cincinnati by storm over the past few years, and we can't wait to see what the future holds for our local communities through our collaboration with the FC Cincinnati Foundation.The FC Cincinnati Foundation aims to achieve transformational change for underserved children in our local communities.Foundation-specific programming focuses on character development, physical and mental well-being and community service. To help drive change and impact a positive response, soccer programming is used as a catalyst to reinforce character values and improved health.The Foundation also serves as FC Cincinnati’s philanthropic arm, making donations and investments to Cincinnati-area organizations that have similar goals and ambitions for the area’s youth.

Sportscaster Bryant Gumbel once said, “The other sports are just sports. Baseball is love.”In our community, when the snow has melted away, and the temperatures are slowing rising, one thing stands out above the rest…Reds baseball.The Reds Community Fund has taken our community’s passion for the team, and invested it back into our under resourced youth. More than 45,000 kids and coaches benefit annually through programs such as field renovations, instructional seminars, academic tutoring, and opportunities for children with disabilities.The Reds Community Fund provide is a great example of what it means to Live Generously. There is an abundance of resources and love that are being shared to help transform the lives of thousands of people every year through incredible learning opportunities and experiences.Our relationship with the Reds Community Fund is one we cherish and feel built up in, because we see others being built up.
