Fuel Cincinnati® Committees

Fuel Cincinnati is organized by two committees made up of young professional, local volunteers. Some of the members of both boards are former grantees.

Executive Committee

This committee gets together for two to three hours each month to review proposals, meet potential grantees, make connections and determine who gets fueled. Each member is also a member of one of the following subcommittees, except for the chair (who keeps a watch over it all, in 360º) and the treasurer (who oversees the funding transactions):

Development – looking for funding in all the right places

Operations – coordinating potential grantees

Communications – spreading the word about what Fuel does

Events – organizing Fuel the Fire and other events throughout the year
