Haile Grant Provides Nonprofit Support

OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence thanks The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation for their $15,000 grant to support consulting projects with nonprofit organizations. Through this grant, nonprofits will be strengthened for greater impact in the community.

New location at 936 Dalton Avenue!

OneSource Center continues its support of nonprofits, always looking for expanded ways to be of service to those we serve in the region. On June 1 we relocated to our new location at 936 Dalton Avenue, Cincinnati, 45203! The location is more centrally located and much more accessible to the pulse of the region and to the nonprofit clients OneSource Center serves. We look forward to working with you from this centralized hub.

The new location has easy interstate and city access, has plenty of parking, and is in a light industrial area (very similar to our current location.) The Shoppers Club layout and merchandising will have a new look and expanded offerings will be presented to nonprofits in the months to come. It is an exciting time for us to share our resources with the community. contacts and in-kind donations — everything from a new delivery truck signage wrap to temporary warehouse storage assistance to design, warehouse take-down and preparation, flooring renovation and even help with painting.

Official kudos and thank yous to come — but once again city leaders, local businesses and individuals alike recognize the importance of the OneSource Center mission and stand by us with their support.

Stay tuned for grand opening announcements!
