Charity Grants

Our Grantees

We fund public charities based in or serving financially disadvantaged residents of Northern Kentucky.  

Priority consideration goes to programs and organizations that promote 

  • Individual dignity
  • Gainful employment
  • Self-sufficiency
  • Education and life-long learning
  • Long-term, positive outcomes
  • Efficient leveraging of resources (challenge grants, collaborations, etc.)

Typical Charity Grants include start-up funding, operating support, or program support for local charities that meet basic needs, such as shelter, food, clothing, education, legal representation, rehabilitation, therapy, substance abuse counseling, and/or child abuse prevention services. 

Multi-year grants and challenge grants may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Grant Cycles and Deadlines

The Foundation’s Board of Directors meets twice a year to consider formal grant requests.  Meeting dates vary but Charity Grant submission deadlines are always March 1 (Spring Cycle), and October 1 (Fall Cycle).  Grant decisions are usually communicated within 10 days of the meeting.
