To encourage others to give locally, we have a matching funds program that is dollar for dollar, doubling your donation. Several non-profit athletic groups, mostly on the West Side of Cincinnati, are eligible for this program as explained at Youth Athletics. Such donations can either be made by: A check using a Donation & Gift Form that can accompany your check. Or, using PayPal via an Online Donation Form.


In addition to a focus on giving, our Foundation encourages visits to museums and other places of interest, which help contribute in making the Cincinnati area, as well as Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky,  unique and special.   


The Foundation was established to recognize and continue the philanthropic efforts of the Schott Family* that formerly resided on a property once known as Pine Meer Estate on Cincinnati's West Side.
