Queen City Foundation

An Educational Bridge To The Future

For over 40 years, Queen City Foundation, a local non-profit organization has assisted minority students in the Tri-State Region. Our goal is to introduce, inform, and support minority students with academic talent, desire and motivation. Queen City Foundation actively seeks our minority students and informs them about educational opportunities at the most prestigious independent local day and boarding schools throughout the country. These students are shown opportunities commensurate with their individual academic merit and degree of self-motivation. Queen City Foundation provides support and encouragement to enrolled students, through programs such as RA.I.S.E. (Raising African American Awareness in a School and Social Environment) founded during the 1989-90 school year by students from independent schools in the greater Cincinnati Area.
