About Community Shares

Our Mission: Community Shares of Greater Cincinnati is a partnership of 23 local nonprofit organizations building social and economic equity and a healthy environment in Greater Cincinnati. As a 501 (c) (3) we raise awareness and support for our member organizations through workplace giving campaigns, professional enrichment, community education, and a variety of innovative initiatives.

Community Shares is able to help build justice, equity, and a healthy environment only because of direct support from you, our donors. 

Thanks to our Fall Appeal Chair Karen Aronoff and many generous donors, we reached our $60,000 fundraising goal at the close of 2016. Thank you.

We help build relationships, community involvement, and citizen activism by connecting member groups, donors, and employers.
