People’s Liberty is a philanthropic lab that brings together civic-minded talent to address challenges and uncover opportunities to accelerate the positive transformation of Greater Cincinnati. People’s Liberty invests directly in individuals through funding and mentorship, creating a new, replicable model for grantmakers in other cities.



Haile Fellowship

Two individuals each year are challenged to research, plan, implement, and present the results of a big idea that could change our community's future.

Project Grants

Sixteen individuals a year are awarded $10,000 to implement innovative community development projects in the Greater Cincinnati region. 

Globe Grants

Three individuals a year are given the keys to our 800 sq. ft. storefront gallery in Findlay Market to launch a provocative installation that engages the surrounding neighborhood.

Residency (aka The Society of Mad Philanthropists)

Nine individuals a year are invited to  join our team for a
three month term to sharpen their visual and verbal
communication skills, while developing inspiring new ways to tell the People’s Liberty story.
