Mission: Cincinnati Cares is the region’s only public-facing search-and-discover guide to the 700+ active nonprofits in the Greater Cincinnati region. Part of the nonprofit Inspiring Service, cincinnaticares.org helps connect the public to what nonprofits need now.
Serving Our Community:
We are the most popular way for Cincinnatians to find their way to help. We connect leaders to nonprofit boards, creating WIDER—welcoming, inclusive, diverse, equitable, and representative—nonprofit boards. We connect experienced professionals to nonprofits for specialized projects and conversations. We certify nonprofits as Service Enterprises, organizations that engage volunteers at the highest level. We provide a free online platform for 1:1 tutoring for disadvantaged students.
