Why I Give

  • I give to Louisville Ballet, and invest in the Arts community, to ensure my kids’ grow up in a vibrant, cultural environment that fuels their creativity. I give because the artists and organization feed my soul and I’m appreciative. On a strategic level, I want to be part of an upward trend in donors under the age of 50 – and instill charitable values in my daughters and the generations to come by openly discussing and encouraging giving.

Thank You!

We are grateful for the continued support of our community.
