Grants to Kentucky nonprofit organizations and school districts to meet community needs and enhance education, primarily in the metropolitan Louisville area. Priority is given to programs that address issues within the social services and public education areas.

Most of the grants are made in the Louisville area and support a wide variety of endeavors, including public education, economic development, medicine, the arts and social/health services.

Although many needs of the communities are ongoing, the Foundation designates approximately thirty percent of its annual gifts to new initiatives whose objectives are consistent with the long-term goals of the Foundation.
