Maximize the power of giving.


Founded in 2013, Ignite Philanthropy works with non-profit organizations and donors to leverage people, ideas, and capital to fuel community solutions.

Ignite co-creates and executes strategies to advance key community initiatives, helping non-profits and philanthropists improve lives and enrich communities. We do this through intentional listening, community engagement, and data analysis.

We are grateful to have been entrusted to work alongside numerous non-profits and community leaders to drive nearly $1 billion in economic impact, restoring some of Cincinnati’s most prominent cultural assets over the past decade. The restorations of historic Music Hall and Union Terminal, LADD’s Forever Home equitable housing project, and Freestore Foodbank’s $30 million Growing Beyond Hunger Campaign are a few examples of our many partnerships.

We are expanding our catalytic approach to fundraising and grantmaking, starting with Charlotte in 2024.
