Three Cincinnati organizations are vying for a $100,000 charitable grant.
The Humana company said it will announce the winner of its Humana Communities Benefit grant during an event Tuesday evening.
The three finalists are:
- The Children's Home – The charity wants to renovate its industrial kitchen to provide meals to at-risk and developmentally disabled children, while instilling healthier eating habits.
- YMCA of Greater Cincinnati – The group proposed piloting an exercise machine, The Access, by IncludeFitness LLC, that would be available for use by all community members, particularly individuals with physical disabilities and limitations.
- Zoological Society of Cincinnati – The society aims to improve its "Eat Like an Animal/Play Like an Animal" educational outreach program to promote healthier food choices for adults and children.
Organizers said the grant program gives a one-time donation of $100,000 to a new charity each year. The program is now in its sixth year.
Last year’s winner was ProKids, a nonprofit dedicated to providing volunteer advocacy for foster children.
Tuesday night’s celebration begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza at 35 W. Fifth St. The winner will be announced at 7:15 p.m.
