Our mission is to encourage philanthropic giving to make a positive impact upon our communities now and for generations to come.

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.

Our efforts focus on serving the counties of Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Monroe, Simpson and Warren.

John and Linda Kelly represent over a 30 year legacy of connection and engagement in our Bowling Green community. The couple has dedicated themselves to providing meaningful support to many local organizations and are the primary advocates to their namesake, The Kelly Autism Program at WKU. Through the Kelly’s sacrificial giving of their time and money, they are what we would call the “fabric of Bowling Green, KY.”

Perhaps you have considered a charitable legacy to continue your philanthropy beyond your lifetime, to have your family name remembered and your philanthropy woven into the lives of others. With a legacy gift, you can. We encourage you to join others whose philanthropy will endure through a gift they have planned in their estate.

We invite you to join our Infinity Circle, the legacy society of the Community Foundation. The Infinity Circle was established to honor those forward thinking individuals who will leave an indelible mark on our community through a gift from their estate. Too often, these thoughtful gifts go unrecognized because they come at the end of a donor’s life.
