Marvin Lewis Community Fund

The Marvin Lewis Community Fund seeks to empower, educate and inspire individuals in the Greater Cincinnati region through its ongoing outreach programs. They host several fundraising events, manage their membership clubs and accept general donations to raise money in order to support these programs.

In addition to the programs they established, Coach Lewis wanted to make an immediate impact in the community so for first five years some of the funds raised were distributed to seven recipient organizations that Marvin truly believed in. Organizations supported included: The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati; Boys Hope Girls Hope; Minorities in Mathematics, Science and Engineering (M2SE); National Multiple Sclerosis Society; ProScan Pink Ribbon Center; Success by 6; and Youth, Incorporated.

While they still support these organizations in various ways, financially they've shifted their focus towards their own programs.
