We believe education is the key to economic opportunity and is one of the most valuable investments we can make in the future of Kentucky. It is important to support high quality educational opportunities from pre-school through college. However, it is increasingly critical to ensure that education and training programs also connect students and the workforce to career pathways and meet the workplace needs of employers.
We aim to help Louisville and Kentucky flourish through innovative and collaborative approaches that cultivate strong, sustainable communities, develop a robust economy and improve the perception of Kentucky.
When deciding where to plant roots, people want to join an inviting and compassionate community that has boundless civic pride. We support work that positions Louisville and Kentucky as a livable community where people want to work, play, learn and lead.
Does your organization have an idea that aligns with our mission to bring about transformational change in Louisville and throughout Kentucky? We would love to hear more about it. Begin a dialogue with us and learn more about the Foundation’s process of empowering citizens to improve the quality of life and well-being of all Kentuckians.
Since the foundation’s inception in 1954, its dedicated board and staff have worked to build on James Graham Brown’s legacy and carry out his vision for the city of Louisville and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
