Your Heart. Your Community. Your Values. Your Choice.

Community Shares of Greater Cincinnati is uniquely positioned to help you invest in the causes that matter most to you in our communities. We are our region’s only local federation of charities working on social change, environmental, and animal welfare causes. You may designate your gift to our overall work in these fields, you may choose a specific member organization to benefit directly from your gift, or you may choose any qualified charitable organization to support through us.

Your gift makes this work possible. Please pledge today to commit to a payroll deduction, recurring credit card gift, or one-time investment to support vital changes to strengthen our region. (Paper pledge forms are also available from your department's campaign coordinator for cash, check, credit card, or payroll deductions.)
