Lexington Nonprofit Coalition


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

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!

If you are a nonprofit based in or providing significant services in Lexington, we urge you to join the Coalition! Click here for more details.

KNN membership is required of Coalition members and dues for the Coalition are currently $135/month (as more members join and LNC membership milestones are achieved, the monthly dues amount will decrease).
