Community Foundation shares story

-A A +A

Thanks to all our members who joined us for the chamber luncheon this week. We had a great turnout.

Al Rider, president and CEO of the Central Kentucky Community Foundation, shared with our group how they can offer people a way to help strengthen their local community by working with donors who want to make a lasting impact through giving. The opportunity is within our grasp for LaRue County.

"Community philanthropy is about connecting the people, money, organizations and essential programs a strong community requires,” said Rider. “Community philanthropy is the catalyst that brings the financial wealth of your community and the will of its people together."
