Haile Foundation

The application period for the $100,000 Haile Fellowships closes tomorrow, October 1. The Fellowships, awarded annually to two Greater Cincinnati-based innovators who have bold plans to address local challenges, are part of an ongoing effort by People’'s Liberty to find and foster individuals with creative ideas to better our community.

All of today's contributions - up to 50,000 - will be doubled, thanks to The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. / U.S. Bank Foundation. 

  Last December, People'’s Liberty announced its two 2015 Haile Fellows, who each received $100,000 to develop their winning business concepts. Now People'’s Liberty is opening the application process for its Project Grants. Ranging in size with a maximum $10,000, the grants will be awarded for innovative projects that increase civic engagement and drive community development.

Two Cincinnati men have each received $100,000 from a philanthropic organization that wants to improve the city.  People's Liberty named Brad Cooper and Brad Schnittger as the first recipients of the Haile Fellowship. 

“I can’t begin to express how rewarding it was to call both of the grantees, to let them know they’d be taking on their dream projects next year,” said Jake Hodesh, People’s Liberty’s vice president of operations. “Both indicated how their lives would never be the same.”
