Friends of Johnson County – there’s an exciting new way to support the area with the Johnson County Community Foundation’s 264 Club. This program is based around the 264 square miles of breathtaking beauty only found in Johnson County, Kentucky! The Community Foundation knows that each mile is treasured, and this giving club will help to ensure a bright and prosperous future for Johnson County.
The purpose of the 264 Club is to grow the endowment fund held with the Johnson County Community Foundation and also create some immediate resources for grantmaking. The endowment will remain a permanent source of funding for future generations in Johnson County and the designated spendable will be used to assist with immediate identified needs. The Johnson County Community Foundation board members are asking everyone who considers Johnson County their home, past or present, to join the 264 Club by making an annual donation of $264. The board’s goal is to receive 264 commitments. And, in December, those club members fulfilling their pledge, will receive a commemorative 2023 Johnson County 264 Club ornament.
“We are thrilled to begin the 264 Club and we hope everyone will consider being part of this exciting opportunity that will benefit Johnson County,” said Daffiny Trimble, Johnson County Community Foundation Chair. “The 264 Club is the perfect way for anyone that holds Johnson County dear to their heart a way to give and support the community now and help prepare us for challenges tomorrow.”
The Johnson County Community Foundation Board is made up of local community members and includes Daffiny Trimble (Chair), Jerry Price (Vice-Chair), Connie Bayes (Treasurer), Tammy Barker (Secretary), Dewey Bocook, Doug Pugh, and Chris Slone.
