Become a Donor

At Central Kentucky Community Foundation, giving takes different forms because people have different purposes and giving strategies. You may donate to your favorite nonprofit on Ky. Gives Day or make a commitment as a Give5 legacy donor. However you want to give, we can help you accomplish your giving goals. Whether you want to Give Now or Give Later through planned giving, our donors all have the same desire – to enhance life in our community.

Giving is personal, and so is our service. Each individual, family or organization we work with has unique charitable interests and unique financial circumstances. We help you make the most of both, so you receive the greatest return on your community investment. We’re here to customize a giving plan to meet your needs now and in the future. 

Establishing your own charitable fund at CKCF does not require great wealth and isn’t complicated. We offer a way to simplify your giving and maximize tax advantages. You can provide support to your favorite organizations, or let our knowledgeable staff help you make a difference in meeting local needs. 

We can help you Give Now, Give Later or do both. Whatever your wishes, we can customize a giving plan to meet your specific needs now and in the future.
