About The Greater Cincinnati Foundation

One of the nation’s leading community foundations, The Greater Cincinnati Foundation helps people make the most of their giving to build a better community. We believe in the power of philanthropy to change the lives of people and communities. As a community foundation, GCF creates a prosperous Greater Cincinnati by investing in thriving people and vibrant places. An effective steward of the community’s charitable resources since 1963, the Foundation inspires philanthropy in eight counties in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. At the end of 2015, GCF had net assets of $533 million.

The Andrew Jergens Foundation

Andrew N. JergensThe Andrew Jergens Foundation was established in 1962 in Cincinnati by Andrew N. Jergens (1881-1967).

The Andrew Jergens Foundation, a private foundation client of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, has reached a generous milestone - $20 million granted to the Greater Cincinnati community since its inception in 1962 and nearly $8 million since 2004. The Andrew Jergens Foundation has been an effective and meaningful way for the trustees – some local and some not, some family and some not - to play a role in improving the lives of children in our region.

Purpose of The Andrew Jergens Foundation

The Foundation’s prime interest is the health, education, cultural experiences and social welfare of children in the Greater Cincinnati area.

The Foundation supports programs which benefit children, generally through high school age, in the Greater Cincinnati area (Hamilton, Butler, Clermont and Warren counties in Ohio; Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties in Kentucky; and Dearborn County in Indiana). Over the past several years, the Foundation has had a primary interest in children ages 0-6 years; though applications are still accepted for ages through high school.
