About the FC Cincinnati Foundation
The FC Cincinnati Foundation aims to improve the lives of children in the Greater Cincinnati area through football. The Foundation’s mission is to be accomplished primarily through five key programs: School Club Ambassador, Mini Soccer Pitch Builds, West End Pride and Learning Is Cool. These programs help promote and encourage strong academic performance and serve as catalysts for building character values and improving health. The Foundation also serves as the philanthropic arm of FC Cincinnati, making donations and investments to Cincinnati-area organizations that have similar goals and ambitions for area youth.
