Field of Interest Grants
Field of Interest Grants support organizations working within a specific geographic region; toward a specific purpose; or with a specific population. Each Field of Interest Fund was established by a donor with a specific charitable purpose in mind and, in perpetuity, will continue to support the issues that the donor cared about most.
The Community Foundation of Louisville offers opportunities for artists, entrepreneurs, innovators, and nonprofit leaders.
