JustFundKY is very proud of the great work we have been able to support with our Cliff Todd Endowment Grants. Every year JustFundKY solicits grant proposals to promote the fair and equal treatment of LGBT Kentuckians. Grant recipients are selected after a careful review process. Afterwards, organizations that receive grants are evaluated for their effectiveness. JustFundKY is committed to accountability for the projects we support.
