Meet Our 2019 Charity Partners
Washington United Church of Christ is a worshiping congregation and a “mission church,” dedicated to providing outreach ministries to our neighbors in Camp Washington and surrounding low-income neighborhoods.
Circle Tail Inc.'s mission is to provide service and hearing dogs for people with disabilities at no cost to the individual. We also promote the human-canine bond in our community by providing low cost dog training services, educational programs, and Pet First Aid classes.
Hope Emergency Program is a 501 (c) (3), social service outreach program. Every week food, clothing and household items are distributed to an average of 250 families. In addition to the weekly distribution, a special effort is made to help families recover from personal disasters such as home fires and floods. Our services are open to residents of Adams, Brown, Clinton, and Highland counties.
JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our strength lies in our exclusive focus and singular influence on the worldwide effort to end T1D.
CCHS - We are dedicated to keeping pets in their homes, with the families who love them. Our goal is to connect financially challenged Clermont County pet owners with the community resources that can help them care for their animals. Because when life gets complicated, people more than ever need the unconditional love and emotional support of the pets that share their lives.
The Drake Auxiliary “Polo for Patients” - For more than 27 years, the Drake Auxiliary has been working for the benefit of Drake Center patients. Their fundraising efforts help: Drake Center’s Pastoral Care Program; The Homeward Bound Fund (providing services and equipment for discharged patients qualifying for assistance); Patients’ holiday and birthday gifts, special entertainment, and equipment including the recent purchase of a $65,000.00 custom made 10-passenger van for patient outings.
The Leonidas Foundation – “Polo for Babies” - The Foundation was founded in 2013 by Chris and Betsy Leonidas. Their daughter, Adeline, developed a very severe case of Entero Virus and was admitted back into the hospital just seven days after birth. She experienced liver failure and a stage three brain bleed as a result, but the care that Cincinnati Children's provided was nothing short of a miracle. Feeling helpless and forever indebted to the amazing team there, Chris and Betsy vowed to always give back in any way they could. The Leonidas Foundation's overall mission and goal is to raise money for Infant and Child research and care for years to come through events like this and others.
St. John United Church of Christ – “Food Raiser”- St. John UCC is an active congregation located in Reading. Our Mission Statement is: As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to worship, to serve our community in Christian love, and to nurture our members along their spiritual journey. Part of serving our community is to host a church-supported Food Pantry, which is open twice a week. Instead of the usual $20/carload, you may bring a bag(s) of non-perishables such as spaghetti, peanut butter, spaghetti sauce, canned meat, etc. as your entrance fee.
At each home game, Cincinnati Polo Club gate fees benefit a local partnering charity.
