Outstanding Philanthropic Volunteer Awards

Each year, the University of Cincinnati Foundation honors outstanding volunteers, staff, students and groups who go beyond the call of duty through their philanthropic efforts.
 
UC volunteers demonstrate their commitment by generously giving their time, talents and treasures to provide educational and experiential opportunities for students, faculty and staff. Without the work of these dedicated individuals and groups, UC would not be where it is today.


About the Awards
