2017 was the 5th annual statewide event and the 2nd year CKCF has facilitated a focus in our region. Kentucky Gives Day has been building momentum since 2013, when it was first launched. In the past 5 years, the event has raised $1,132,105.

Through Kentucky Gives Day, people will be able to donate money online to participating non-profit organizations in our community. With prize incentives and some friendly competition, we can raise dollars and awareness for the great service nonprofits who give to our community each day.
