The Endow Kentucky Program, along with the Endow Kentucky Commission, was established during the 2010 Regular Legislative Session with the approval of Senate Bill 227. Endow Kentucky was created in an effort to increase philanthropic activity to support communities across the Commonwealth. Gifts can be cash or appreciated stock, and must be made to a qualified community foundation. The Lake Area Foundation has a qualified community foundation status.
