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 and UC Health volunteers demonstrate their commitment by generously giving their time, talents and treasures to provide education, research, clinical care and experiential opportunities for students, patients, faculty and staff. Without the work of these dedicated individuals and groups, UC and UC Health would not be where they are today.

If you know a volunteer who deserves to be honored, fill out our online nomination form for the 2019 Outstanding Philanthropic Volunteer Awards.
