Special thanks to Association of Fundraising Professionals of Greater Cleveland for creating the video above.
On November 5, 2021, Huntington National Bank received the Corporate Leadership Award from the Greater Cleveland Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. The association celebrated National Philanthropy Day and honored community members who generously give their time, talent and resources to improve our city.
"It is a true privilege to work with University Hospitals for so many years, especially in providing philanthropic support for cancer care and research at the UH Seidman Cancer Center," said Sean Richardson, Regional President, Huntington Bank. "The real thanks goes to the medical professionals and volunteers who bring outstanding care to so many people each year. Your work keeps the doors open and the services available for those in our community who need them most."
As a steadfast supporter of University Hospitals since 1985, Huntington National Bank has committed more than $3 million to support the UH mission.
The greatest example of Huntington’s impact at UH is their enthusiasm and collaboration on Five Star Sensation, which is the largest fundraising event supporting UH Seidman Cancer Center. Huntington has graciously served as the Presenting Sponsor of this biennial event since 2007. Their generosity celebrates the lifesaving work of our physician-scientists and caregivers at UH Seidman Cancer Center. More than $22 million has been raised at Five Star Sensation to benefit the development of clinical trials, cancer treatments and groundbreaking research.
In addition, Huntington National Bank has supported other events including Ride the Rainbow, Rainbow Golf Classic, UH Parma Medical Center Golf Classic, UH St. John Medical Center Golf Classic, Becky Hennessy Golf Classic, and UH Ahuja Medical Center Gala. Funds raised through these events have a direct impact on the patients in our community.
And when UH needed them most, Huntington stepped up. As one of the first corporations in greater Cleveland to commit funding to UH during the pandemic, their partnership supported the immediate needs of our health system. Huntington went above and beyond to recognize the efforts of our frontline caregivers.
With strong community partners like Huntington National Bank, UH is advancing its timeless mission – To Heal. To Teach. To Discover.
