As President of the Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation since 1983, Ned Hertzenberg has helped thousands of young people overcome financial obstacles to pursuing post-secondary education. 

During Ned’s tenure, the Foundation has grown from administering a dozen scholarships totaling $80,000 annually to administering 149 scholarships totaling $1.6 million.  In 2020-2021, more than 1,000 Greater Cincinnati area students benefitted from a CSF-administered scholarship.  But the need is still great…

To honor Ned and his legacy, we are announcing the Hertzenberg Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation Fund.  Gifts to Ned’s fund will provide much-needed financial support so that the CSF reaches even more deserving students for years to come.
