Event to feature thought leaders in health, poverty, education, and workforce
Covington, KY – Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky is partnering with the Kentucky Philanthropy Initiative to host a new event that will take a comprehensive look at the community’s unique opportunities through the lens of future philanthropy.
Power in Numbers will focus on a recent study addressing the significant transfer of wealth taking place in Northern Kentucky, and the opportunity to capture some of that wealth to invest back into the community, especially in the areas of poverty, workforce, health, and education.
“The new data from the Transfer of Wealth Study show that we have tremendous potential to impact some of our region’s most pressing needs,” shared Nancy Grayson, President of Horizon Community Funds. “We invite all interested community members to engage in a day of learning and thoughtful discussion on how we can join together to create a brighter future for Northern Kentucky.”
Featured speakers from regional and state organizations will highlight opportunities for addressing local community issues and attendees will participate in conversations related to the information and strategies presented throughout the day. Northern Kentucky youth who have been empowered through philanthropy will also share their inspiring stories.
