Eric Avner, CEO, People’s Liberty

Hosted by Christopher Bolling and Stephen Peterson

The Haile/U.S.Bank Foundation launched People’s Liberty as a philanthropic lab in 2015. What is People’s Liberty and what the heck is a philanthropic lab? How is this bold $15m, five-year endeavor poised to redefine how foundations invest in place? More importantly, what opportunities are now available for people in Cincinnati to make change in neighborhoods?  Eric Avner, People’s Liberty CEO, says “We’re convinced philanthropy is more than just cutting a check; it’s surrounding people with mentors and skills they need to be successful.”  He’ll answer all your questions about this exciting new venture.

The hosts describe their 1923 North Avondale Tudor as “just a cool old Cincinnati house.” Perched atop a rise, this beautifully kept Tudor home is a charming vista, complete with a tower. Enjoy heavy appetizers, desserts, wine, beer, soft drinks, and coffee.
