WHAT IS GIVE LOCAL LOUISVILLE?
Give Local Louisville is a 24-hour online giving day created to inspire people to give generously to the nonprofits that make our community a better, more vital place to live. In 2015, we made history, raising $3 million for the 362 participating nonprofits. More than 5,200 donors from around the city, nation, and globe joined the effort and, dollar for dollar, showed the power of citizen philanthropy.
This year's Give Local Louisville will take place on Thursday, September 15, 2016. And our goal is simple - to raise more money for more of our community's nonprofits. Once again, the Community Foundation of Louisville and our partners will maximize the community's generosity with Golden Tickets, prizes, and bonus dollars. We hope that these and other incentives will inspire thousands of people to give to the local causes they care about and to turn their collective generosity into impact for our community.
Give Local Louisville is hosted by the Community Foundation of Louisville. The Community Foundation of Louisville is the largest charitable foundation in Kentucky with over $430 million in assets and more than 1,350 different funds, each with a charitable purpose defined by the donor. In 2014, the Community Foundation made over 8,000 grants totaling $45 million to local, national and international nonprofits. Working together, the Foundation, its donors, and community partners leverage collective knowledge, creativity, and resources for a greater impact than any of us can make alone.
