Lexington Nonprofit Coalition


The Lexington Nonprofit Coalition is a local alliance of KNN members committed to a stronger, more unified and collaborative nonprofit sector serving the Lexington community. The Coalition officially launched in late 2020.

The work of the Coalition so far has been essential to 
creating a unified voice that has better educated the Mayor’s office and the Urban County Council on the work and economic impact of nonprofits; helped move the Urban County Council in 2020 to restore the proposed elimination of funding of the city's partnerships with nonprofits; has led to important actions to support students and families coping with non-traditional instruction; and is helping craft solutions that would ensure our city address both COVID-19 and racial and social inequities. There is still much work to be done and so many partnership opportunities ahead!
