Charles H. Dater Foundation

The Charles H. Dater Foundation was founded in 1985 and makes grants to non-profit organizations in the Greater Cincinnati area to carry out projects that benefit young people and focus in the areas of arts/culture, education, healthcare, social services and other community needs.  The Foundation does not operate programs, but makes grants to private, non-profit organizations and public agencies for their programs and projects.  

The Foundation has made over 2,900 grants totaling more than $45 million.  Established to ensure that funding for worthwhile community programs would continue after his death, the Foundation preserves the memory and philanthropic commitment of Charles H. Dater (1912-1993) and his ancestors, whose hard work and business acumen over four generations provided them with the opportunity to share their success with their community. The Foundation has no full time staff and is guided by an active Board of Directors.
