Grants to Kentucky nonprofit organizations and public school districts to benefit residents in the greater Louisville metropolitan area. New applicants are requested to contact staff prior to applying. Priority will be given to social services and public education programs.

Applications are considered for worthy causes of all kinds. Public education and social services will receive emphasis.  Care is exercised to balance the needs of today with the anticipated needs of tomorrow.  

Although many needs of the communities are ongoing, the Foundation designates approximately thirty percent (30%) of its annual gifts to new initiatives whose objectives are consistent with the long term goals of the Foundation.
