…and contribute to the human capital responsible for moving our community forward.
The Leadership Louisville Center relies on your support to successfully sustain our current activities, and to assure that a truly diverse network of leaders will be prepared to guide Louisville’s future.
Without your help, stories like these could not be told:
“I cannot begin to guess the number of additional lives that we will be able to change because of the Leadership Louisville Center’s Ignite Louisville program! Our Ignite Louisville team has taken us in a direction that would not have been possible without their knowledge, leadership and hard work!”
Danielle Archer, St. Elizabeth Catholic Charities
“I retired from the Air Force as a colonel and came back to Louisville, because I wanted to bring a world vision to local challenges. I wanted to live in West Louisville, where I was raised, and empower that community. Leadership Louisville allowed me to meet citizens across the city who share this commitment.”
Pamela Stevenson, French & Associates LLC
“As a result of Focus Louisville, I feel a greater sense of civic duty and engagement. I have already begun helping Supplies Over Seas – the non-profit I visited during Focus – develop an IT strategy for managing their warehouse. Had I not participated in the program, I may have remained in the silo of the start-up community, and could have overlooked other sectors. Thank you for the scholarship!”
Zack Pennington, Kentucky Chia
“There is no way YouthBuild Louisville would be where it is today without the Leadership Louisville Center. Each interaction with the Center has expanded the sphere of opportunity for me and my agency. The connections, fresh viewpoints and resources have opened possibilities for us.”
Lynn Rippy, YouthBuild Louisville
“I’m so grateful for the Focus Louisville scholarship! I made so many new connections that will help me professionally but will also be great resources for my students. It will change the way I do business and I am very excited about educating my colleagues and students to what I’ve learned.”
Rebecca Mercer, Presentation Academy
“The new contacts, the energy and the love for the community are all tangible outcomes of Focus Louisville. The program was designed to make us all accountable for the success of our community. I now see the connection between our community and entrepreneurs, and the contribution by entrepreneurs to education, job creation and growth, vital elements for a thriving community. Thank you!”
Alice Cissell, MHA, Edumedics® – Moving Healthward
With every Leadership Louisville Center interaction, opportunities open up for individuals and our community.
Personal connections, fresh viewpoints, steps into the unfamiliar – through these experiences, we empower people to change anything – from themselves all the way up to the world.
For our community to thrive, these opportunities can’t be limited by financial resources. Otherwise, the potential for greatness will be limited, and our community will lose the talent of leaders from all backgrounds.
“Everyone has an opportunity to be great because everyone has an opportunity to serve.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
