Louisville Nonprofit Coalition


The Louisville Nonprofit Coalition (LouNC) is a new local alliance of KNN members committed to a stronger, more unified nonprofit public policy voice in the metro Louisville community.

If you are a nonprofit based in or providing significant services in Louisville, we urge you to join the Coalition! Click here for a one-page summary to learn more. 

KNN membership is required of Coalition members and dues for the Coalition are currently $200/month (as more members join and LouNC membership milestones are achieved, the monthly dues amount will decrease). Ready to join?

Why is this needed in Louisville? Hear from some members:

• “Louisville nonprofits cannot afford more missed opportunities – the time for a local, unified lobbying effort is now,” Pam Darnall, CEO, Family & Children’s Place

• “Fund for the Arts is enthusiastic about this opportunity to bring together diverse types of nonprofits – including arts organizations and others. We encourage others to join with us for maximum impact,” Candace Weber, Director of Annual Giving, Fund for the Arts

• “This is a tremendous idea aligned with our organization’s current direction. We are excited to participate and collaborate with other nonprofits,” Stan Siegwald, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Dare to Care Foodbank
