Blue Grass Community Foundation’s board of directors has created a charitable fund to advance racial equity and address anti-Black racism. 

The charitable fund has two component parts. The first allows donors to support immediate needs; while the second component, a permanent endowment, will provide resources in perpetuity to advance the mission of the Initiative. The immediate needs component was launched with a combined gift of $100,000 from three donors: the Thomson R. Bryant Jr. and Betty R. Bryant Fund at BGCF, Knight Foundation Donor Advised Charitable Fund at BGCF and the Community Foundation. An additional gift of $100,000 from the Jenna and Matthew Mitchell Family Foundation at BGCF doubled the immediate needs funding to $200,000.

To jump-start the funding of the permanent endowment, an anonymous donor and Matthew and Jenna Mitchell have issued a $100,000 endowment challenge to the community. Gifts of any size to the Initiative’s endowment will be generously matched dollar for dollar, up to $100,000.

Suggested Amounts

Give to the Lexington Black Prosperity Fund Endowment and your donation will be matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous donor and Jenna and Matthew Mitchell!
