About Fort Washington

In Our Community & Beyond

Together with our parent company, Western & Southern Financial Group, we support causes that promote a strong economy, exceptional health care, educational achievement, and a rewarding quality of life. 

For these reasons, Fort Washington and our affiliate Touchstone Investments are members of the Equity Collective. The Equity Collective is an industry-leading group of wealth and asset management businesses who have partnered and committed to educating, empowering, and developing the next generation of diverse leaders in the finance industry. Since its launch in late 2021, more than 3,900 students have been impacted by the programs via partnerships with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, hellohive, and Team IMPACT. Through these efforts, we are helping build a robust, diverse talent pool to fuel the growth of the investment industry for generations to come.

Additionally, Western & Southern's six title sponsorship events are just a few of the many ways we partner with community groups locally to make Cincinnati the best place to live, work, and enjoy life. Western & Southern is committed to supporting Cincinnati’s non-profit community through sponsorships, charitable donations, and contributions that have topped $55 million over the last five years. The company seeks not only to strengthen the social fabric of our community but to inspire other companies, individuals, and business leaders to step forward to do their part for our community as well.

"Our involvement with The Equity Collective has connected us with individuals and other organizations that are doing incredible work, both locally and nationally. To join forces with them in an effort to open the door to students who are still learning how to harness their talents and interests has been such a rewarding experience."

– Maribeth Rahe, Fort Washington President & CEO
