About Your Neighborhood
Columbus is the headquarters of Huntington, and of our Central Ohio region. Huntington Bank has a long and distinguished history of supporting programs throughout Central Ohio that are designed to enrich the community and create an environment where our children can grow and thrive. The breadth and depth of these efforts range from multi-million-dollar programs aimed at the revitalization of major parts of the city to the individual volunteer efforts of Huntington associates at all levels of the corporation. Huntington strives to give our best back to our communities, fostering strong, healthy and vibrant neighborhoods by sharing our resources and time.
Huntington is proud to be a catalyst for positive change in the greater Central Ohio area. We take this role seriously. We support affordable housing and financial literacy, and work to improve the lives of those most vulnerable in our communities.
A Personal Investment in Stronger Communities
Huntington is proud to be a lead sponsor of Pelotonia, an annual cycling event held each August in central Ohio to help fund cancer research. For those who ride, volunteer and give, Pelotonia is a uniquely powerful and moving event — and is remarkably effective at generating funds for fighting the disease.
Since our involvement with the first race in 2008, Team Huntington has raised over $15 million dollars for The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, based in Columbus. It’s a national leader in creating and testing new therapies based on scientific research, many of which are offered nowhere else in the world.
Pelotonia funds are allocated to four primary areas:
• A fellowship program that encourages promising students to pursue research with faculty mentors
• Idea Grants that provide seed money to teams of faculty researchers who are collecting data in order to apply for larger external grants
• Sophisticated equipment to aid in cutting-edge research
• Recruitment and retention of the brightest minds in cancer research
•American Red Cross
•Big Brothers, Big Sisters
•The Center for Family & Safety Healing
•Community Shelter Board
•Ohio Health/Grant Medical Center
•Ronald McDonald House
•St. Vincent Family Center
•United Way of Central Ohio
If kids learn to manage their allowance and understand the importance of saving, chances are better they’ll grow up to be financially stable. We’re committed to providing financial education to students of all ages.
The Huntington Reality Days is an exciting program that introduces young adults to every day financial decisions, using the FDIC’s Youth Money Smart curriculum. This interactive event partners career exploration, financial education, and the hands-on experience of making monthly budgeting decisions during a game of life simulation.
Huntington and television station CW Columbus host an annual all-day Reality Days program called Get Real in partnership with Columbus City Schools. More than 600 students from local high schools in Central Ohio learned about the importance of smart money decisions and participated in a budgeting simulation highlighting financial empowerment through career planning, saving, smart spending, and budgeting.
Junior Achievement’s BizTown® is a hands-on learning program that includes a day-long visit to a simulated town at the JA headquarters in Columbus. Participants operate 14 businesses, oversee city government and manage their personal finances. Huntington is proud to be a sponsor of the Central Ohio BizTown program and our colleagues volunteer for various events throughout the year, helping students learn how to deposit paychecks, make purchases and complete banking tasks. Junior Achievement BizTown® is a registered trademark of Junior Achievement USA and JA Worldwide.
We understand the importance of supporting non-profit organizations in the areas we serve so that our communities are strengthened and needs are met. Huntington annually hosts the Seeds for Growth conference, where hundreds of leaders from across Central Ohio gather for a day of sharing and learning from each other around the topic of philanthropy in Central Ohio.
