About Us

Our Mission
The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation is an independent family foundation dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for residents in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. We are concentrating our efforts and resources in areas about which Carol and Ralph were most passionate: Arts and Culture, Community Development, Education, and Human Services. We also honor the Hailes’ high regard for and long history with U.S. Bank through our Bank Legacy Initiatives. All of our work is intended to have the greatest impact possible as we, in collaboration with our region’s stakeholders, help lead the way to a strong and vibrant community.
 
Our Geographic Focus
The geographic focus area of the Foundation includes the 10 counties in the Greater Cincinnati region: Hamilton, Butler, Warren, Clermont and Brown in Ohio; Kenton, Campbell and Boone in Kentucky; Dearborn and Franklin in Indiana.
