Blue Grass Community Foundation



C. W. and Irene Sulier had a vision - a permanent fund that would be invested and the income used for grants as needs rose in the community.


In 1967, they established the Blue Grass Community Foundation. Their gifts to the Foundation over the years became the General Endowment Fund. Income from the fund is given out annually in grants to agencies and in scholarships to high school seniors going to college.




Today the Foundation carries out their vision by offering people many ways to give for a wide variety of interests.
