Kentucky Chamber Foundation



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."
