Franklin County

The Franklin County Community Fund is a permanent charitable resource that supports local causes and organizations.  

A local advisory board puts donations of all sizes to good use by making grants to meet the needs and vision of the community. They partner with individuals, businesses and nonprofits to make Franklin County a better place to live, learn, work and play. 

In the past, we have contributed to, and collaborated with, the following projects:

  • Kings Center in collaboration with Franklin County Rotary Foundation
  • Franklin county Council on Aging
  • Franklin County Humane Society
  • Mission Frankfort Clinic
  • Dolly Parton Imagination Library of Frankfort
  • Give Me Shelter
  • Save the Grand Theatre – Voices from the Balcony
  • Family Circle – Fast Track Program
  • Grant to the Wanda Joyce Robinson Foundation

Start where you are. Use what you have. Give what you can.

We encourage you to donate now and make a gift that supports Franklin County in perpetuity. We accept a wide range of assets, providing you the ultimate flexibility in charitable giving. 

Your donation may be eligible for a tax credit! Learn more about the Endow Kentucky Tax Credit.
