Established: 2017

Mission: Cincinnati Cares’s vision 
is to create a healthy, vibrant, and connected Greater Cincinnati. Cincinnati Cares’s mission is to
inspire and empower people and organizations to engage in helping that matters to Greater Cincinnati and themselves.

Serving Our Community:
Cincinnati Cares is solving two problems: reversing the twice-the-national-rate- of-decline in local volunteerism and ending the lack of diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion in our region’s nonprofit boards. Through innovative technology, Cincinnati Cares has become the most popular way for Cincinnatians to find a way to help. Through rebuilt and first-in-the-country AI and machine learning, a board platform is connecting nonprofits to hundreds of board candidates. Cincinnati Cares is the only organization in the region 100 percent focused on the volunteer. By engaging individuals and businesses through technologies to connect to our region’s nonprofits, Cincinnati Cares is creating a healthy, vibrant, and connected community. Cincinnati Cares is improving the volunteer experience by leading nonprofits in a change-management system proven to advance missions through greater volunteer engagement.
