Hospital-Wide Fundraising for Key Community Partners

Ambassadors. Cincinnati Children’s leverages its large employee base to conduct significant fundraising campaigns that further our commitment to making a difference in the region. Recipients include the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, ArtsWave, the American Heart Association’s Heart Mini Marathon and the March of Dimes March for Babies to raise funds in awareness for infant mortality and premature birth.

Cincinnati Children’s is able to make a substantial impact in our community thanks to the consistent financial support of our dedicated employees and senior leadership. Last year, we raised nearly $1.6 million in support of these organizations and deployed nearly 1,800 volunteers in improving the quality of life for Greater Cincinnati residents.
