About the Center for HumanKindness
In May 2021, The Columbus Foundation created the Center for HumanKindness to cultivate a culture of kindness that honors the humanity of one another and fosters belonging and connection in our communities. Research shows that kind acts, big or small, are transformative for the giver, receiver, and bystanders. Join us on this journey to extend the ripples of kindness in our community with resources, inspiration, and service opportunities.
