The University of Cincinnati Foundation announced today its 2019 Outstanding Philanthropic Volunteer Award winners – those individuals who have demonstrated extraordinary philanthropic commitments to UC and UC Health. Honorees include Margaret Valentine, A&S, Ed ’71 and Michael Valentine, CEAS ’73; Dianne Dunkelman, founder and CEO of the Building Healthy Lives Foundation; IMPACT Autism; Karen Hatcher, UC’s executive senior associate athletic director for external relations; and Rachel Roseman, MEd ’18.
“These annual awards are a wonderful reminder of the importance of our work,” said UC Foundation Board of Trustees Chair W. Troy Neat. “The UC Foundation exists to inspire a community of UC and UC Health supporters through the power of philanthropy.”
“Each honoree has inspired us by giving back in significant ways to UC and UC Health,” said UC Foundation President Peter Landgren. “From transformative supporters of UC athletic and educational programs, to world-class leaders in health initiatives, to a driving force behind the UC Bearcats Pantry, our 2019 award winners have made a remarkable impact. We thank them for making a difference in our local and global community.”
