For Nonprofit Organizations
A strong nonprofit community is vital to our donors, our work as a community foundation and our region. We value the important and hard work you do every day. Nonprofit organizations meet important needs and create quality of life enhancements for our community.
Part of our mission is to support and strengthen our community’s nonprofit organizations. You support our community and we support you.
You may face challenges carrying out your mission, but we can provide resources and opportunities to help your organization, wherever you are in your life cycle. Whether it’s through donor support, establishing endowment funds or collaboration and resources, you can rely on our local knowledge and expertise.
By working together, we all make this community better. Let’s Do Some Good Today!
An endowment fund is a valuable tool in the financial portfolio of a nonprofit. It creates a financial bedrock for the organization through a permanent stream of support. An endowment only uses the earnings from the fund, ensuring the fund grows and continues forever. It’s a way to demonstrate to donors your organization is planning for a financially stable future. If your organization is interested in opening an endowment fund or growing an existing fund, let our experienced staff help you with endowment planning.
Nonprofit Learning Opportunities
We’ve continued working with nonprofit leaders to host learning events for our regional nonprofit community. We are excited to announce our upcoming Nonprofit Roundtable event being held in person on Tuesday, August 23rd from 9am – 3:30pm ET at CKCF’s Home of Philanthropy Community Hall. This all-day event was created specifically for nonprofit organizations. You will explore best practices to amplify your impact in the community.
Have you talked with your regular donors about Endow Kentucky tax credit? If not, now’s the time. The Endow Kentucky program provides a 20% tax credit to donors who contribute to a permanent endowment at Central Kentucky Community Foundation. Encouraging your donors to take advantage of the tax credit could be one way to ensure the longevity of your organization and its missions. We’re here to help you and your donors take advantage of this opportunity. Let’s get started today.
You’ve worked hard to build relationships with your donors, especially people who give regularly to your mission. But what happens after your donors pass away?
Even though conversations with donors about estate gifts can feel uncomfortable, they often lead to stronger relationships and giving plans.
Kentucky Gives Day
It’s a fundraising opportunity your organization can’t afford to miss! For the 2019 event, the region joined together to raise more than $155,000 to support local nonprofit organizations, the most ever for our area. Each year, Central Kentucky Community Foundation and the Kentucky Nonprofit Network Inc. partner to bring Kentucky Gives Day to our region. Kentucky Gives Day is a 24-hour online fundraising event bringing charities and Kentuckians together for a powerful day of action. Our goal is to raise as much money as possible all through a single online giving site and in just 24 hours!
