“How Ronald McDonald House Cincinnati Became the Largest in the World”

Jennifer Loeb has served as CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati since 1998.  Under her leadership, Cincinnati’s House has grown from a small, 20-bedroom House to be the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world, with 177 bedrooms and a successful $52-million capital campaign. Jennifer is a frequent local and national speaker on the topics of fundraising, culture and not-for-profit management. She was named a YWCA Career Woman of Achievement in 2020, one of Cincinnati’s “Forty Under 40” by the Business Courier in 1999 and is a graduate of Leadership Cincinnati Class 30. Jennifer earned bachelor’s degrees in English/journalism and theater from Miami University and master’s degrees in journalism and health education from The Ohio State University.

Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House was a recipient of the Non-Profit of the Year award from the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber and the Torch Award from the Better Business Bureau. RMHC of Greater Cincinnati is regarded as a model in hospitality, employee engagement and donor stewardship. Prior to her career with RMHC, Jennifer worked in development and communications for a not-for-profit drug treatment program and a homeless shelter.

Jennifer is a former Peace Corps volunteer and twirls fire baton for fun. She lives in Cincinnati with her three children, Hadley, Beatrice and Hugh.
