Purpose and Activities

The foundation is dedicated to celebrating the life and legacy of its benefactor by providing philanthropic support to improve the quality of life of the larger Northern Kentucky region and its people, with a particular emphasis on education, social services and community development.

Priority is given to new or innovative projects and programs that make the larger Northern Kentucky community a better place to live, learn and work; that are measurable with stated goals and objectives; that demonstrate effectiveness and innovation, or great potential for such; that are models for others; that demonstrate collaboration; and that can eventually be self-supporting or show evidence of long-term viability and impact .
