Home of Philanthropy

Central Kentucky Community Foundation’s Home of Philanthropy is now open. With a Grand Opening celebration on Nov. 7, the doors officially opened to the public on the community’s new home.

Our new Home is:

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

Our Capital Campaign

Although construction is complete, the capital campaign is not. Our goal is to raise $1.3 million of the $3 million projected costs through the campaign. With leadership contributions, along with other generous gifts from community leaders, the capital campaign has now surpassed $800,000.

Will you help us to finish the campaign  for  the Home of Philanthropy?

Our Philanthropy Story

The history of giving and philanthropy in our region is an important part of our community’s history. Throughout the Home of Philanthropy, we tell the stories of giving that have shaped our community. Through various displays we highlight donors and community initiatives making a difference today. 

A historical timeline greet guests as they enter the Community Hall, paying tribute to the people and journey that shaped philanthropy in our region.

“We think it is important to tell the community’s story of philanthropy in the community’s home, the Home of Philanthropy,” said Davette B. Swiney, president and CEO of Central Kentucky Community Foundation.
