Other Ways to Give

​The Kentucky Environmental Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.

Unrestricted gifts will be applied to KEF’s most urgent funding needs.  Or, you may select to restrict your gift for one of KEF’s programs (safe chemical weapons disposal; clean energy; safer chemicals) or an even more specific project.   Memorial gifts and naming opportunities also provide ways for you to recognize an individual with your gift. In addition, you might be able to double or triple your gift if your employer has a Matching Gift Program. For information on their participation, consult your company’s Human Resources Department.

In addition to accepting cash gifts, KEF is also able to accept donations of real estate, stock, etc  through our account with the Blue Grass Community Foundation.

For any of these options, please feel free to call the office at (859) 986-7565 for more information!
