Our Story
Pay It Forward Cincinnati began in 2015 by Kelly Dolan and Michael Kroeger, who envisioned using the power of collective action to help those in need in our community. Kelly and Michael are also the founders of Ingage Partners, a technology and management consulting company in Cincinnati, Ohio. Pay It Forward Cincinnati is Ingage's non-profit partner and together, we collaborate to improve the lives of our fellow community members.
Our Impact
The programs we support span solutions for under-resourced nonprofits, under-employed adults living in poverty, and promoting our youth's positive example in the community. Our programs demonstrate that being the change you wish to see in the world will have a monumental effect on others. Pay It Forward Cincinnati creates ripples that will lead to tidal waves of positive change in our community.

Pay It Forward Cincinnati, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, empowers people to bring positive change to Greater Cincinnati. Through a variety of programs, we intend to have a measurable and lasting impact on our community.
