“The spirit of Northern Kentucky shined in each nomination, and we are reminded of how important our uncommon advocates are across the nonprofit sector,” she continued.

The community is invited to attend the 2020 NKY Philanthropy Symposium to learn about how all Northern Kentuckians can plug into and support local efforts that are moving the region forward. More information can be found here.
