Connecting Community and Philanthropy to
Make the Most Impact

The Community Foundation of Louisville brings together individual donors, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and civic partners to transform our community through charitable giving. As a leader in social impact and innovation since 1984, we continue to grow and build on Louisville’s legacy of philanthropy by connecting the financial resources of our donors and their passions with our community’s needs.

We believe in the power of compassion, the spirit of charitable giving, and the commitment from people in our community to change lives through philanthropy. Collaborating with donors from diverse backgrounds and interests, we enable you to maximize your charitable impact now and beyond your lifetime.

Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief - How You Can Help

The recent rain and flash floods in Eastern Kentucky has resulted in devastating loss. In addition to loss of life and injury, the floods have trapped people in their homes, washed away bridges, and damaged homes and businesses.

Many have asked how to help. The Community Foundation of Louisville desires to share timely and trusted information about response efforts, and has curated opportunities for those who may wish to support immediate relief and recovery efforts for the region’s home and business owners. All of these organizations accept tax-deductible contributions.

Giving Had No Limits in 2021. Thanks to the support of generous donors, Give for Good, our community’s biggest day of online giving raised $8.9 million for over 550 local organizations in 2021. #SeeTheGood by viewing the impact report below. 

The Community Foundation is one of the largest charitable foundations in Kentucky with over $800 million in assets and more than 2,300 charitable funds. Each fund is unique and defined exclusively by our donors. Whatever your philanthropic passion, we can match your interests with a giving opportunity, whether that’s the arts, education, social and racial justice, social services, technology innovation, healthcare, or hundreds of other areas of focus.

In 2021, in partnership with our donors, the Community Foundation made over 11,000 grants totaling more than $64 million, approximately 78% of which stayed in Kentucky and Southern Indiana to support local nonprofits where we work and live.

Community is the root of our name and the source of all we do. We invite you to join us in continuing to cultivate an abundant and sustainable future for the Louisville region through philanthropy.

Inspiring for the Future

The story of the Community Foundation of Louisville continues to grow – from the many donors who believed in community philanthropy decades ago, to those who share their inspiring stories today, and to countless others who are dedicated to making an impact in our community through charitable giving.
