Options for Giving

Horizon Community Funds has options for the full spectrum of donors, from those who want to give to a general community fund to those who want to choose what charities benefit from their gifts.

New this year: Your gift to an endowed fund at Horizon Community Foundation could earn you a substantial state tax credit through Endow Kentucky!

Donors may receive the tax credit by establishing their own charitable endowment fund or by contributing to existing ones at Horizon Community Funds. Learn more here.

To apply for the tax credit, donors must file an application for preliminary authorization with the Kentucky Department of Revenue. Instructions and an application for preliminary approval are available online here, or download the application directly here.

Learn more about our funds in our new video, created with Spotted Yeti Media!
