How do You Want to Give?

Do you have a giving heart and want every dollar you give to help build a more vibrant and thriving community? Do you want to maximize the potential tax savings and other financial benefits of your charitable contributions? Do you prefer to be spontaneous with your giving, or do you need a long-term plan? Do you want to give now, or create a detailed estate plan for when you’re gone? Do you have a passion for one particular cause, or are your interests diverse and plentiful? No matter your charitable intentions, the Community Foundation of Louisville can help.

A Continuum of Giving

Whether you’re looking to make a quick and easy online gift, or need personalized guidance from one of our charitable giving experts, we have an option for you.

Self-Directed Giving

Do you already know how you want your dollars to make a difference? Have a direct impact on the causes that matter to you by making a donation to one of our existing funds, or give to specific nonprofits via our website donation form.

Field of Interest Giving

If you have a specific area of interest (i.e. education, healthcare, the arts) let us assist in aligning your gift with the greatest needs in our community.

Customized Giving

Our philanthropy experts can guide you through every facet of establishing your own fund. Choose a designated fund to benefit a narrow area of focus, a Donor Advised Fund, where you can recommend grant distributions to support your interests and needs, or a scholarship or memorial fund to honor a loved one.
