Community Support

Charitable giving through the Community Foundation is intentional. We empower and inspire our donors to give in creative ways, and our funding opportunities enable a broad array of local nonprofits and small businesses to dream big and be successful in ways that would not otherwise be possible. Together, we are transforming our community. We believe our community is stronger when those working toward change, resilience, and inclusion have the financial resources, connections, knowledge, and support they need to thrive. That’s why we offer unique and innovative funding opportunities for nonprofit organizations, community groups, entrepreneurs, innovators, and nonprofit leaders.


From grant opportunities, to Fund for Louisville social justice grants, to Impact Capital loans, the Community Foundation offers funding for nonprofit organizations, community leaders, pioneering business ideas, and projects advancing social and financial benefit.


Give for Good Louisville is Kentuckiana's biggest online giving day. It provides charitable organizations the opportunity to raise visibility, connect with donors, and Community Foundation fundholders while inspiring community generosity.
