How We Started

In 1998, GCF teamed with local leaders to establish The Northern Kentucky Fund of GCF. This permanent, charitable resource brings together donors with the common goal of enhancing the quality of life in Northern Kentucky. Since its inception, the fund has invested in the health and vitality of communities in Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties.

How You Can Help

Your tax-deductible gifts to The Northern Kentucky Fund generate earnings that are given back to the community in the form of grants.

With its extensive grantmaking experience and dedication to philanthropic stewardship, GCF ensures the grants are directed to the organizations serving the region’s greatest needs. In addition, grant dollars from The Northern Kentucky Fund are combined with financial resources from GCF’s Community Fund pool to make an even greater impact.
