what we do

We work toward the goal of philanthropic giving through building and overseeing a permanent collection of endowment funds. We have several funds that serve specific sections of the community. For information on all of those, please visit Our Funds page.

We also maintain The South Central Kentucky Endowment Fund. This generalized endowment allows the Foundation to meet changing and emerging needs within the community.

Focusing our efforts on the counties of Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson and Warren, we work to:

  • Promote philanthropy;
  • Build and oversee a permanent collection of endowment funds from donors and agencies;
  • Respond to community needs and opportunities through our grant cycle;
  •  Serve as a trustworthy partner and effective steward to this community asset;
  • Always honor and preserve donor intent.
