How to Contribute to Invest Louisville

The Community Foundation of Louisville holds nearly $800 million in philanthropic assets today. Collectively, local foundations manage over $5 billion in assets. Yet, most of these assets are not invested with local impact as a primary goal. Too many of Louisville’s entrepreneurs, organizations, and businesses struggle to access investment capital.

Years of research have revealed consistent capital development gaps that keep more equitable and impactful investments from happening – particularly in affordable and accessible housing, entrepreneurship, and land development. Through Invest Louisville, you can be part of a unique opportunity that can make your charitable investments as impactful as your grantmaking.
