Donated funds will be used to construct four new affordable homes for local families over the next four years

Latest pledge brings Ohio National’s total giving to the organization to $2.3 million since 2009

Partnership has already resulted in the completion and sale of 26 homes 

Ohio National has renewed its support for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati, ensuring that more local families can realize the dream of home ownership. The company has pledged $500,000 over the next four years to fund the construction of four new homes, making it the longest continuously serving corporate sponsor of the housing nonprofit. 

Since 2009, Ohio National has donated more than $2.3 million to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati, resulting in the completion of 26 homes to date. The new agreement provides for the construction of one additional home each year from 2022 to 2025.

To qualify for a Habitat home, families must contribute 250 to 500 hours of sweat equity and take classes on homeownership and personal finance. Participants purchase their homes from Habitat on a 30-year, interest-free mortgage.

“When you help someone become a homeowner, you’re making a multigenerational impact on the family,” said Barbara Turner, president and CEO of Ohio National. “That’s why we treasure our partnership with Habitat. It’s an opportunity for us to help deserving families in our community achieve financial stability today and security for next generation.”

“We are honored that Ohio National has chosen once again to invest in the community’s future through affordable homeownership,” said Ed Lee, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati.  “As our longest-running local business partner, Ohio National provides a model for corporate citizenship that makes a lasting difference in a family’s health, safety and wealth.”

Since its inception in 1987, The Ohio National Foundation has donated more than $29 million to charitable causes, including $1.6 million in 2021.
