CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Roger Grein, founder and president of nonprofit Magnified Giving, was recently honored nationally and locally with distinguished honors for his lifelong generosity and focus on strengthening lives and communities.
Grein was selected from 19,000 full time volunteers as the National Father George Mader Award by the Catholic Volunteer Network. Named after the Network’s founder, the annual Award is given to an organization or individual that encourages lay men and women to serve others locally, nationally, or internationally. Grein was also named 2012 Philanthropist of the Year from the Association of Fundraising Professionals Greater Cincinnati Chapter.
“Life hasn’t been easy for Roger. He has struggled to get what he has gotten and still, the first thing he asked himself was how he can serve others. He has a heart of gold,” said Bill Keating, Jr., a board member of Magnified Giving.
