Get Involved


Everyone can be a Philanthropist!

The LYPC is a ‘triple play’ for our community: first, we help teenagers develop a philanthropic spirit at a young age; second, the community is helped by the grants that the Council awards; third, we are inspiring our youth towards future service in the non-profit world – either as a career path, or as a volunteer. 


The LYPC is a fiscally sponsored program of the Community Foundation of Louisville, and operates under its 501(c)3 public charity designation with its fiscal sponsorship.  The LYPC is 100% funded by grants and donations, and is managed by a few paid part-time staff and many volunteers.


By investing in the LYPC program, you are not only investing in our students as they learn how to run a non-profit organization, but you are investing in the community of Louisville.

"The Louisville Youth Philanthropy Council isn't just a group of young adults making mature decisions, it's a journey. A journey where you discover new places, meet exciting and accomplished people and learn about things that can only brighten your future! LYPC is an awesome adventure!"
-Julee Strong


Is your company or organization looking to get more involved in local philanthropy? 


The LYPC program is a hands-on learning program. We create real-life experiences for our students to participate in while learning the practices and principles of philanthropy. 


One very important aspect of the program are ‘Ask Presentations.’ An Ask Presentation is where our students make a face-to-face request for financial investment. We need the support of corporations and businesses that are willing to invest in the program while also giving our students the opportunity do the asking. 


  • Have you started your own Non-Profit?

  • Are you looking to get more involved in our Community?

  • Is your company or organization interested in learning more about Youth Philanthropy?

We have an open-door policy here at the LYPC. We invite you to come visit one of our classes and see our students in action. We also love the opportunity to learn from those already doing the work. Are you interested in speaking to our class? Just contact us to arrange a visit to one of our classes. We would love to have you!
