Learning Links & Summertime Kids

The Greater Cincinnati Foundation is Greater Cincinnati’s community foundation, helping individuals, families, and businesses establish charitable funds to make the most of their giving and build a better community.  GCF exists to inspire current and future generations to invest in a more vibrant and prosperous Greater Cincinnati where everyone can thrive.  Two very impactful GCF programs have been supported by the Dater Foundation since 1993, and grant support increased significantly in 2018.

•  Learning Links … gives teachers and other educators at local schools the opportunity to apply for classroom or school-wide small projects they lack the necessary financial resources to implement.  Grants are awarded up to $1,000 each.  In 2018, 157 small grants were awarded for a wide variety of school projects that impacted over 35,000 students in Greater Cincinnati.  Of the grants awarded, over half went to schools where 50% or more of the students are on the free or reduced lunch program.  Teachers received funding for such creative projects as Multi-Sensory Reading Instruction, Mindful Music and a 3D Printing Club.

•  Summertime Kids ... provides small grants of up to $1000 each to local nonprofits that provide summer programs for children and youth ages birth-18.  Funded programs provide enriching and fun experiences for the children.  They combine learning components and safe environments.  In 2018 there were 185 Summertime Kids grants awarded that benefited over 33,000 children and youth in the tri-state.  Activities included field trips, summer reading/writing projects, STEM Summer enrichment programs and a variety of summer camps.
