In 2006, Debra Hensley, Ernesto Scorsone, and many volunteers executed the astonishingly successful Out and About Banquet in Lexington, raising over $100,000 to benefit the Kentucky Fairness Alliance. It was a beginning of an incredible partnership.
JustFundKY was created and incorporated to keep that energy alive and the momentum moving forward. Our work resulted in creating an endowment to fund the many good efforts in Kentucky to eradicate discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (lgbt) community.
At the start of JustFundKY, Mr. Cliff Todd of Louisville, KY offered a very generous matching grant to assist us in reaching our goal of a million dollar endowment -- Mr. Todd will matched the $500,000 donated to the Fund.
The money raised by JustFundKY supports an endowment that will preserve the principal, but create a continuing revenue stream from the earnings that will work year after year and long outlive us.
Since its inception, JustFundKY has held exciting and invigorating annual events that have raised over 1 million dollars for the furtherance of our goals. Help us make a difference for the lgbt community. Together we can be successful in our fight for fairness and equality. Your contribution to JustFundKY will help make our efforts lasting ones!
