MISSION STATEMENT: Community Shares of Greater Cincinnati is a partnership of local non-profit organizations dedicated to building social and economic equity and a healthy environment in the Cincinnati region. Community Shares raises awareness and support for its member organizations through workplace giving campaigns, community education and a variety of innovative initiatives. Community Shares connects donors with organizations that positively change people’s lives, and it distributes donations based entirely on choices indicated by donors. 

TOP PROGRAMS: Community Shares develops programs that promote self-reliance, develop affordable housing, protect the environment, build an inclusive community and promote civic involvement and reform.

Community Shares helps progressive local businesses invest in the future of their communities by investing in their employees’ passion for a community connection. Offering expanded choices in charitable giving through workplace employee giving campaigns, Community Shares helps sustain employee satisfaction by arranging hassle-free payroll deductions exclusively to organizations selected by the donor. Individuals without access to workplace giving programs can give directly to their preferred non-profit groups through Community Shares’ convenient donation website or through several formal planned giving options. YPSHARES, an association of young professionals, engages and inspires young leaders to become the next generation of community philanthropists.
