Reflecting on the Foundation’s 25th anniversary in 2020, we are thankful to the thousands of individuals who help sustain the beauty of the Cincinnati Park system.
Over 100 Board members have volunteered in the Foundation’s history to lead our organization to raise over $100MM for various Cincinnati Park projects. Each year, many generous donors make a commitment to giving financially to Parks, which is a gift that benefits entire the community.
The Hats Off Luncheon is our premier fundraising event of the year. Proceeds from Cincinnati Parks Foundation’s most vital fundraising event are used wherever they benefit the parks system most, from parks programming, to capital projects, to underwriting general operating support.
To date, the event has raised more than $2.7 million in support of Cincinnati Parks.
