The Kentucky Chamber’s 501(c)(3) foundation works to bring economic, education, and workforce initiatives to our state that provides impact beyond the business community’s normal reach. The Leadership Institute for School Principals provides executive level leadership training to Kentucky’s school principals that you won’t find anywhere else. Likewise, The Kentucky Chamber Workforce Center provides a much needed alignment between the needs of businesses and the Commonwealth’s workforce, and policymakers. The Foundation also serves as a resource for data and research to aid the development of new solutions to the Commonwealth’s challenges as they arise. I’m proud that my Kentucky Chamber membership extends beyond employer needs."

History

Originally founded in the 1997, the Kentucky Chamber Foundation was founded as a passive vehicle for receiving donations supporting ad hoc economic development and education efforts in Kentucky. During the last decade, the Foundation has seen significant growth due to interest from corporate foundations and the creation of effective programs to fulfill its mission. Now, the Foundation is poised to build on these successes by pursuing programmatic outcomes that benefit our state and grow the organization’s impact.


ADVANCING KENTUCKY IN EDUCATION, HEALTH AND WELLNESS, ENERGY, GOVERNMENT EFFICIENCY, AND GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS.

The Kentucky Chamber Foundation furthers the Chamber’s goal of advancing Kentucky by leading initiatives for research and action. The Kentucky Chamber Foundation covers broad community and business issues not only with advocacy but with a level of innovation and education that is unmatched in the Commonwealth.
