non profit


For more than 20 years, Express Cincinnati has been raising awareness about the work of local non-profit groups in the areas of art, culture and philanthropy. The magazine recently broadened its mission to cover the individuals who make things happen in our community and those who simply make amazing things.

  One of the keys to the success of any nonprofit organization is its ability to convey its message to a broad audience, from volunteers to national foundations and the media. Social Venture Partners Cincinnati (SVP) provides a program to help local nonprofits better-define their messages, sharpen their presentations and improve their story-telling skills.
