Committed to Northern Kentucky

Horizon Community Funds was founded in 2016 by four lifelong Northern Kentucky residents, business, and professional executives, Bill Butler, Chuck Scheper, Bob Zapp, and Will Ziegler. United in their shared commitment to increase philanthropy for Northern Kentucky, they believe that Northern Kentucky leaders are best positioned to understand and address the interests, needs, and opportunities within Northern Kentucky.

Horizon Community Funds’ primary service area is Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties of Northern Kentucky.

Our structure

Horizon Community Funds was established in 2017 as a 501(c)3 organization and community foundation.

Horizon Community Funds is governed by its own Council of Trustees, and its programs are carried out by its own executives reporting to the Council.  Horizon Community Funds offers a series of fund arrangements to accommodate donors who, like the Council, desire to contribute in some way to the advancement of the community.
