There is such a strong sense of pride across our region. Pride in where we live, where we work, where we raise our families, and where we choose to make a difference. The Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky enables people to easily and effectively support the causes they care about—immediately or through their estate plans.


Our Regional Endowment is the tool to scale our local success across the Appalachian region.


From active recreation for youth to access to healthy, local foods, our grants make a difference in the lives of people in the communities we serve. To expand that impact across Appalachia, the Foundation is building a Regional Endowment.

Our Regional Endowment is guided by a Rural Development Philanthropy model that prioritizes community involvement to maximize community impact. We make the most of any gift, regardless of size, because every gift matters.

Donate today to make a difference that reaches beyond county lines.
