Current initiatives

  1. We are working to educate the public on the subject of immigration. Our focus is the young undocumented immigrant who was brought over to the U.S. as a young child, and therefore doesn’t really remember any country other than the U.S.  We recently presented this program at a Cincinnatus meeting and are now in the process of arranging other venues for this program.
  2. Another current initiative has been the study of the inequities in the juvenile justice system. Some progress has been made, but we are waiting for more information as to what still has to be addressed.

Past initiatives 

The Greater Cincinnati Commitment was started by Cincinnatus.  It is a commitment to eliminate discriminatory behaviors, policies and practices from the Cincinnati area. The origin of this is the Birmingham Pledge from Birmingham, Alabama, which began as a result of racial turmoil in that city. 

 

 

Focus

The Marketing Committee works to get the message of the Cincinnatus Association out. Our audience is members and the public. Our committee coordinates press releases, produces a monthly newsletter and has oversight of the Cincinnatus Association website. It is our goal to keep our members, and the public, informed about the good work of the Cincinnatus Association and our members.

Meeting schedule

The Marketing Committee meets several times a year at the convenience of its members but does not have a set meeting schedule.

The Cincinnatus Foundation is a nonprofit set up to support the work of The Cincinnatus Association.

Mission

The mission of the Cincinnatus Foundation is to engage our members in meaningful work that significantly improves the quality of life for all citizens of our region, and that builds upon the Cincinnatus tradition of leadership in advocating for changes that benefit our entire community through the use of the intellectual capital of our members.

Strategy

Cincinnatus will accept proposals from organizations capable of leveraging significant changes in our region with support from teams of our volunteer members. We will not accept proposals intended to match individuals or groups of volunteers to direct service projects. Proposals to create an alliance with Cincinnatus will be evaluated according to potential impact on the region and the possibility for successful conclusion within two years.

Guidelines and Eligibility

Cincinnatus will accept proposals from non-profit and community service organizations that serve the Greater Cincinnati area. Generally, the Cincinnatus contribution will be in the form of volunteer participation and lending of expertise by its members. Projects will be assisted by Cincinnatus members for a time period generally not to exceed two years. Should additional time be needed, the organization may reapply.

The project must be feasible to be completed in the proposed time period. There must be a clearly documented community need or opportunity. The applicant must specify the expertise and time contribution that is being requested.

The organization needs to be fiscally sound and the proposed project needs to be both financially possible and realistically sustainable.

Areas for consideration can include Arts and Culture, Community and Economic Development, Education, Environment, Health, Government, and Inclusion. Upon completion of the project, or at the end of the assistance period, the organization must submit an evaluation report to Cincinnatus to conclude the assistance.

Application Procedure

The applicant must submit a brief, but detailed description of the project, the community need or opportunity to be addressed, the length of time assistance will be needed from Cincinnatus, the estimated number of members needed, skill sets needed, and the end results sought.

Decision-making Process

A Foundation Review Committee, comprised of five members, will evaluate each application. Eligible projects will be presented to the Cincinnatus membership. Once appropriate teams of Cincinnatus members have been identified, the names, skill sets, and contact information will be provided to the applicant. Once a team is in operation, a primary spokesperson should be identified who will provide periodic progress reports to the Executive Committee and the general membership.
