Why We Care
Why is this important, and why now?
Volunteerism rates have been declining across the country and even more sharply in the Cincinnati region. Fewer volunteers means fewer resources for our nonprofits to deliver on their missions, each of which helps create a kinder, more sustainable, more beautiful or more just community for all of us.
While researching why volunteerism is declining, especially in our region, we learned that there are many people who want to help – as well as a growing need for their help – but they are simply not connecting with each other. Until now, it has just been too hard to make this connection.
Cincinnati Cares makes it easy for those who want to help to connect with ways to help, and inspires people by illuminating the diverse variety of opportunities available to make an impact in our community.
