Capital Campaign: Home of Philanthropy


Since 1960, Central Kentucky Community Foundation has served as a resource, leader, and catalyst for people who wish to make a positive impact on our community.

In this spirit, we are thrilled to announce our newest endeavor: The Home of Philanthropy.

Slated for completion this summer, Central Kentucky Community Foundation’s new Home will:

  • Create a dedicated space to promote and inspire a spirit of philanthropy throughout our region;
  • Foster synergy, strengthen relationships, and prompt new ideas for addressing what matters most to the people we serve;
  • Become a trusted place for nonprofits, businesses, houses of worship, and organizations to convene and collaborate; and
  • Establish a permanent home to accommodate the growing work of CKCF.

The capital campaign goal is to raise $1.3 million of the $3 million projected costs through philanthropy. With leadership contributions, along with other generous gifts from community leaders, the capital campaign has now surpassed $700,000 raised.
