We are a financial institution with a social mission.
At our core, the Community Foundation of Louisville is a financial institution that provides trustworthy and personalized service to help donors achieve their charitable goals.
We mobilize capital to address our community’s inequities – especially racial ones – by serving as a connector, convener, funder, and data analyst, developing innovative solutions that move us all forward.
Thanks to donors like you, we are able to make a positive impact on our community. Check out our Annual Giving Report to see how your contributions can make an even bigger difference.
