Message from President and Board Chair The Foundation has undergone a visible transformation this year. After 17 years we have created a new logo, and we are excited to share its meaning and purpose. Our previous one served us well—it represented strength, permanence, stability, and trust. While the Community Foundation still embodies these characteristics, we also want to demonstrate innovation, relevance, creativity, and vision. The new logo you see is a more modern and colorful fleur-de-lis—our community’s long-standing symbol. We have a renewed commitment to leadership and community enrichment. The logo is a visual representation of what we view as key building blocks for effective philanthropy: Community, Connection and Charity. You’ll find these important words represented by the blue and red C’s that form the core of the fleur-de-lis. Ultimately, though, this is not about the Foundation’s transformation. We want to acknowledge, celebrate and inspire the transformation that happens in our community and beyond because of your generosity. Since our founding in 1984, we have distributed more than $500 million in charitable grants, and these valuable dollars enrich our community in countless ways. Whether it’s feeding the homeless, building world-class parks, expressing creativity, educating our children or caring for the elderly, together we are transforming our community. We are honored that you entrust us with your philanthropic dollars, and we are committed to being worthy stewards of your charitable legacy.

Ernest and Ona Marshall

“We want our daughter to be prepared for the joy—and responsibility—of giving back to the community.”

Ernest and Ona Bass Marshall have dedicated their professional lives to healthcare­—Ernest is an OBGYN and Ona’s career has been in hospital administration. They have also dedicated their lives to raising their daughter, Meagan, and instilling the values of working hard, doing your best, and giving back. “We feel a strong connection to healthcare, so we support several health-related causes,” explains Ona. “Each of us has also had the opportunity to receive a great education, which has led to some wonderful opportunities. We want others to have those same opportunities, so we give to educational institutions as well as organizations that help people on their educational journey.” One of their local favorites is Eastern Area Community Ministries (EACM), a faith-based, grass-roots organization that brings together dozens of congregations, businesses and groups to help out their neighbors in need. In addition to its emergency financial assistance and Dare to Care food bank, EACM offers Latino Outreach Services to help Latino neighbors fully integrate into the community, which the Marshalls support. Ernest and Ona have always made charitable giving a part of their lives, and they want their daughter to share that same passion for giving. “Our fund at the Community Foundation allows us to include Meagan in our family’s giving,” adds Ernest. “When we are no longer here, she’ll have some important decisions to make regarding these charitable dollars. We want her to be prepared for the joy—and responsibility—of giving back to the community.” Ona Marshall speaks with Paty Robles, Director of Latino Outreach at Eastern Area Community Ministries.

Charles Bottorff Lifelong Goshen resident Charles Bottorff has quietly and steadily supported his local community for decades. A retired electrical contractor, Charlie has lived in Oldham County throughout his 92 years, and he and his late wife, Imogene “Gene” White Bottorff, are familiar names in the area. In fact, Charlie was named as one of Oldham County’s “Living Treasures” by the Oldham Era in early 2011, which recognizes longtime residents who have generously served the community through good deeds with their kind hearts. “We didn’t have any children, so I wanted to leave a legacy for the Goshen community and throughout Oldham County,” explains Charlie. “I’ve been blessed in my life. Whatever you give, you don’t miss it. In fact, you’ll often find it multiplies. I honored my wife, Gene, through a scholarship at the Vanderbilt Nursing School. But I also wanted to do something closer to home. That’s why I’m so delighted to be a founder of the Oldham County Community Foundation.” As an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Louisville, the Oldham County Community Foundation has a local board of advisors to oversee grantmaking in their community. Thanks to Charlie’s generosity, there are now four endowment funds to support diverse needs in Oldham County: • Arts & Culture • Education • Environment & Public Benefit • Health & Human Services

Charles Bottorff is a long-time supporter of the Oldham County Family YMCA. He believes it is important to give young people a place to go, and it’s a great benefit to the entire Oldham County community.

“My family’s been a part of this community for generations. I’m just glad I can continue that legacy through these endowments at the Community Foundation.”

“I’m so happy that I was able to make this gift during my lifetime,” adds Charlie. “I can see it in action now. But I know these endowments are really gifts for the future— the real power of these funds will be seen in later years. My family’s been a part of this community for generations. I’m just glad I can continue that legacy through these endowments at the Community Foundation.”


Jack & Marilyn Monohan

“We believe it’s important to be generous and to help others. This charitable fund is a great way to express that value for generations to come.”

When you hear the name “Monohan” in St. Matthews, the image of a firefighter immediately springs to mind. A Monohan has served in the St. Matthews Fire Protection District since 1931, and John “Jack” Monohan III is proud of his family’s history of service to the community. “We’ve had six Monohans who have served in the fire department. Each started as a firefighter, and each has served in a number of ways, including three as chief,” explains Jack. “Service through the fire department is just in our family’s blood.” The Monohan legacy runs deep in Louisville. From the family farm in the heart of St. Matthews, to Jack’s professional career at Louisville Ladder, to their active membership at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, to his grandfather’s founding of First National Bank (now part of PNC), the Monohans are engaged members of our community. Jack’s devotion to the fire department is only overshadowed by his devotion to his wife of more than 48 years, Marilyn. “We both went to Eastern High School, but we didn’t meet until much later,” says Marilyn. “In fact, we met at a fire department picnic. Our marriage is a wonderful partnership because we both love family, love our community, and love service to others.” By creating the Jack and Marilyn Monohan Fund at the Community Foundation, they are able to support their favorite charitable causes today and long into the future. “We believe it’s important to be generous and to help others,“adds Marilyn. “This is a great way to express that value for generations to come.”

A passion for art

 artin Shallenberger’s works appeared in shows M in Vienna, Budapest, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Louisville and New York.


The funding partnership with the Community Foundation creates a meaningful legacy that will support Martin’s artistic passions forever. Martin C. Shallenberger, Jr. Martin C. Shallenberger, Jr. (1912-2007) and his sister, Sara Shallenberger Brown (1911-2011), lived and traveled throughout the world in their formative years. Their father was a decorated general, so they were raised in U.S. Army posts in places like Serbia, Greece and Austria. Martin graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis and served in World War II, but art was his true passion and calling. Martin went on to study at the Corcoran Art Gallery (Washington, DC) and in New York City at the National Academy of Design and Art Students League. He became a professional oil and watercolor artist with a particular interest in landscape painting.

Martin was a passionate supporter of the arts in Louisville and beyond. His dedication to supporting other artists inspired him to form the Cockayne Fund, which has provided grant funding for arts projects around the world. For several years the Cockayne Fund has partnered with the George and Mary Alice Hadley Fund at the Community Foundation to provide grants for arts programs and arts education in Louisville. This funding partnership with the Hadley Fund has created a lasting and meaningful legacy that will support Martin’s artistic passions forever.

After living in Austria, Mexico, and New York City, he settled in his later years in Louisville. In fact, he lived in the Butchertown neighborhood in a house formerly owned by Mary Alice Hadley, founder of one of Louisville’s most iconic and well-known potteries, the Hadley Pottery Company. The home featured Hadleydesigned tile work and fixtures, and he lived there until his death at the age of 94. Mary Alice Hadley Circa 1945

C ommunit y Partnerships Total Grant Commitment: $150,000 $50,000 per school year, 2011-2014 Transforming Our Community, One Classroom at a Time In the fall of 2011, the Community Foundation announced a three-year partnership with online charity to enlist “citizen philanthropists” to support classroom projects in local public schools. The Foundation is providing matching dollars of up to $50,000 each school year. So, if a teacher has a project worth $400, and donors give $200 towards the project, the Foundation will donate the other $200. The partnership will continue through the 2013-14 school year. The first year of this partnership was a great success. In fact, the Foundation’s matching dollars for the entire school year were exhausted within three months. founder Charles Best was in Louisville on October 18 to announce the partnership with the Community Foundation.

• 184 classroom projects funded

• 136 teachers supported (some teachers submitted more than one project ) • 59 unique schools funded • 19,332 students were supported by these projects • Donations were made by 632 citizen donors from 35 different states • 95% of funded projects will be reusable by future classrooms of students


55,000 Degrees

Turning up the Heat on Education

Total Grant Commitment: $150,000 $50,000 per year, 2010-2013

Total Grant Commitment: $75,000

55,000 Degrees is a public-private partnership that was put into action in the fall of 2010. Its mission, with the support of the Community Foundation and other local foundations, is to launch Louisville into the top tier of our competitor cities with the bold goal of adding 40,000 bachelor’s degrees and 15,000 associate’s degrees by 2020.

There are five recognized “tipping points” that are predictors of students’ future success in their educational journey: early childhood, reading at grade level by fourth grade, middle school transition, high school graduation, and transition to college or career. The Community Foundation and Metro United Way joined together to provide grants for programs addressing these areas.

The Community Foundation has made a two-fold commitment to the mission of 55,000 Degrees. • We have committed $150,000 ($50,000 for three years, through 2013) to support its operations. • The Foundation serves as the fiscal sponsor and “incubator” of this new organization. Its staff members share the Community Foundation offices, and this close proximity creates continued opportunities for collaboration and creativity.

In April 2011, Mayor Greg Fischer joined the Foundation and Metro United Way to announce 27 grants totaling $250,000 to area nonprofit organizations. This funding program was in response to the vision created by 55,000 Degrees, a public-private partnership that is working to add 55,000 post-secondary degrees in our community by the year 2020. When the grants were awarded, representatives for each of the grant recipients were accompanied to the stage by youth ambassadors wearing t-shirts featuring their anticipated year of graduation from college. The ambassadors ranged from the class of 2014 represented by a current University of Louisville student, to the youngest ambassador, a seven-month old baby, representing the class of 2033.

The Foundation also 15K DEGREES established the 15,000 INITIATIVE Our Education, Degrees Scholarship Our Community, Fund, which provides Our Goal. scholarships to eligible African-American students attending nine local universities and technical colleges. The 15K Degrees Scholarship Fund was created by a gift from Greater Louisville Inc. to the Community Foundation. The leaders of the 15K Degrees movement want to see that African-Americans account for 15,000 of the community’s overall 55,000 degree goal. The Community Foundation is administering this scholarship fund in partnership with the 15K Planning Committee.

5x5 Arts Initiative

The Future of Philanthropy

Total Grant Commitment: $125,000 $25,000 per year, 2010-2015

If you were asked to imagine a “philanthropist,” you might envision an older person at home writing large checks to his or her favorite charity. The young people involved in the following programs dispel that stereotype with their commitment to giving.

Experiencing and appreciating the arts is a vital part of every student’s education. That’s why the Community Foundation is proud to support the 5x5 Arts Initiative, which provides five live arts experiences to elementary 5x5 means EVERY CHILD experiences our Arts school students before in EVERY YEAR of their public education. they complete the fifth Regardless of means - every child.

The Community Foundation has committed a total of $125,000 ($25,000 a year for five years) to support this unique and exciting partnership, which will continue through 2015. Major support provided by: Chase & The Community Foundation of Louisville Teacher Arts Grants Program sponsored by: PNC

Additional support provided by: AT&T & Brown-Forman

Presentation of 5x5 is made possible by your contribution to the:

This initiative is more than just a field trip to see an arts performance; it is a holistic program that involves the entire family and is incorporated into the school-day curriculum. For example, second graders will have an in-classroom workshop with dancers from the Louisville Ballet, and students in 3rd grade will make masks with artists from the Louisville Visual Art Association. The 5x5 program is part of the broader Fund for the Arts “Every Child” Arts Education Initiative.

Future Philanthropists The Future Philanthropists program helps school-age children (generally 6-13 years old) learn important lessons about finance, community, and decision-making through charitable giving. Parents allocate a small amount of money for their children to give to a pre-selected charitable organization, and the Community Foundation matches those contributions. This year the Future Philanthropists visited Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS). They were able to feel and touch all of the equipment located through the center to better understand what VIPS children face every day. They also created crafts and games for the Kids Camp and made welcome bags for families. Louisville Youth Philanthropy Council (LYPC) The Community Foundation serves as the fiscal sponsor for the LYPC, a program that educates high school students about philanthropy, inspiring them through hands-on experiences to become community leaders. Participants, who are nominated by teachers and selected through an application process, meet on 15 Saturdays during the school year. The program combines lectures, guest speakers and role-playing activities as well as off-site visits to immerse students in the philanthropic process. Each LYPC class is divided into teams, and they are responsible for creating a mission and distributing $5,000 in grant awards to fulfill that mission. In addition, each team is required to raise funds for the grantmaking budget of the next LYPC class.

Mayor Greg Fischer visited the Louisville Youth Philanthropy Council to discuss his vision for Louisville as a compassionate city.


G R A N T ma k in g matters

Grant distributions from the Foundation fall into two broad categories: Strategic Grants made at the direction of Foundation staff and directors; and grants recommended by our donors through advised or designated funds. Strategic Grants Our Strategic Grants align with the priorities of our strategic plan, supporting important issues and opportunities that help transform our community. We purposefully seek collaborations that will most effectively leverage our grantmaking dollars for the greatest impact. A primary strategy is to support programs that address the community priorities identified by the Greater Louisville Project. We also support programs that enable individual donors to participate, and projects that promote a culture of philanthropy in the region. Our Strategic Grants are supported by the Fund for Louisville (see page 16), a collection of unrestricted endowments and certain field of interest funds.

Scholarship Grants Over 80 endowment funds award scholarships with a variety of criteria and deadlines. To view a searchable database of all scholarships and application deadlines, visit Contact Meredith Spann, Community Leadership Associate, at or 502.585.4649 with any questions.

Please contact Angie McDonald-Hackett, Vice President of Community Leadership, for more information. You may reach her at or 502.585.4649. A grant of $1,500 to Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville helped the Community Foundation reach a major milestone: distributing more than $500 million in grants since its founding in 1984. Foundation CEO Susan Barry and board member Maria Hampton presented a check to Habitat Executive Director Rob Locke at a public announcement of this accomplishment.


R e g ional P H I L A N T H R O P Y Affiliate Foundations The Community Foundation of Louisville has a network of affiliate foundations, each seeking to enhance their communities. Local volunteer leaders work to increase charitable giving and lead on critical issues impacting local needs. Combining resources and working together, we are able to transform communities throughout our region. Supporting Foundations Supporting foundations have many of the advantages of a private foundation coupled with certain benefits of a public charity. Donors and their families can concentrate on their philanthropic interests without worrying about complex administrative, investment and grantmaking details, which the Community Foundation’s professional staff provides.

Felix E. Martin, Jr. Foundation The Felix E. Martin, Jr. Foundation, a supporting organization of the Community Foundation, was created in 2008 by a $50 million bequest from the estate of Felix E. Martin, Jr. (1927-2007). Mr. Martin was a native of Greenville, Kentucky, the county seat of Muhlenberg County. The Foundation supports the educational, civic and cultural needs of the County—both now and for generations to come. Each year over $1.5 million is distributed to benefit Muhlenberg County. To date, the Felix E. Martin Jr. Foundation has awarded over 160 grants totaling more than $5.7 million. The following grants are examples of the creative and collaborative work of the Felix E. Martin, Jr. Foundation in Muhlenberg County: Felix E. Martin, Jr. Hall When the Muhlenberg County School District was planning a new auditorium for the Muhlenberg County High School (West Campus) in 2009, the Foundation stepped up as a funding partner to expand their original vision. Thanks to a $1,000,000 grant, seating for the auditorium was increased from 500 to 800 seats, and additional state-of-the-art technology was included, enabling it to accommodate the entire student body and become the community’s first large performing arts center.

To make full use of the new venue, the Foundation has made an annual grant commitment to pay the salary and expenses of a Technical Director to oversee all operations and programming of Felix E. Martin, Jr. Hall. Grand opening celebrations throughout the month of March 2012 will include a concert at the Hall by the United States Air Force Wings of Flight Woodwind Quartet and the High School’s production of Footloose.

Early Childhood Development Early childhood development and school readiness are critical issues in Muhlenberg County. The Foundation has made a three-year grant commitment to support a Project Manager for the Muhlenberg County School District who oversees programs focused on early childhood development. This has become the SOAR Project (Strategies, Opportunities, Advantages, Resources). In the first year, SOAR has partnered with Head Start for early literacy training for all parents; has brought “Reach Out and Read” to the county, with books distributed by pediatricians at all wellbaby visits; and is distributing “Read to Me” New Baby Packets at the hospital to all new parents. Additionally, SOAR has started the “Pathway to Reading” program for parents and children at Pathway of Hope Center, and will place community bookshelves throughout the county in waiting rooms. Much more is in store as this important program helps children arrive at Kindergarten ready to learn.

Innovation in Schools Students must be prepared with 21st century skills to succeed in today’s world. With the assistance of a $200,000 matching grant from the Foundation, the Muhlenberg County School District has been able to invest more than half a million dollars in technology to give every student access to an Apple iPod Touch, iPad or MacBook. The Foundation also made a $60,000 matching grant to the School District to create the iRead Summer Camp. Teachers transformed their classrooms into campsites including camp fire reading circles, fishing ponds, forests, and tents doubling as reading nooks. The iRead Camp gave extra help to students struggling with reading and provided specialized tools in the Apple technology products to make reading fun.

E N D O W K E N T U C KY The Endow Kentucky Tax Credit enables Kentucky taxpayers to receive a state tax credit for gifts to an endowment fund at qualified community foundations, including the Community Foundation of Louisville. This limited-time tax credit was approved for fiscal years 2011 and 2012, providing $500,000 in tax credits for each fiscal year (ending June 30). Donors may claim up to 20% of the value of their gift as a tax credit, limited to $10,000 per tax payer. As of December 31, 2011, the Community Foundation of Louisville received qualifying endowment gifts totaling $1,497,250 from 46 donors. These endowment gifts created $299,450 in tax credits for these generous Kentucky taxpayers.

These gifts created or added to 26 endowment funds at the Community Foundation. These funds will perpetually support a variety of nonprofit organizations, providing a permanent source of income to important charitable causes in Kentucky. The implementation and evaluation of this tax credit is overseen by the Endow Kentucky Commission, which was appointed by Gov. Steve Beshear in 2010. Its members include Sharon Receveur, a Community Foundation of Louisville board member.


B ay lor L andrum , J r . S ociet y The Baylor Landrum, Jr. Society honors people who have made arrangements in their estate plans to create endowment funds at the Community Foundation. These funds will support their charitable interests forever. About Baylor Landrum, Jr. In the early 1980’s, Baylor made it his personal goal to create a community foundation that would serve as a professional, permanent philanthropic resource for the Louisville area. Under his thoughtful leadership and personal commitment of time and resources, that vision became a reality. He helped a fledgling organization develop the fundamental tools to become the largest community foundation in the region. Baylor valued education, service and leadership, supporting these causes both with financial gifts and volunteer engagement throughout his lifetime. Endowments that he created in the Community Foundation through his estate plans will continue to support these issues in his name for generations to come. Baylor Landrum, Jr. died at the age of 92 on March 28, 2011, leaving behind a powerful legacy of philanthropy through an exemplary life. To honor his unwavering integrity, outstanding leadership and personal devotion to his community, the Community Foundation of Louisville recognizes all donors that make legacy gifts to the Foundation as members of the Baylor Landrum, Jr. Society.

“I love Louisville, and want so sincerely to leave it a better place than I found it. The only regret I have about not making more money is that I would then have had more to give away.” Baylor Landrum, Jr. (1918-2011)

Future gifts of any amount are eligible for inclusion in the Baylor Landrum, Jr. Society. Known future gifts by current Society members total more than $269 million.

Foundation CEO Susan Barry presents a check for $50,000 to Louisville Seminary President Michael Jinkins in memory of Baylor Landrum, Jr. This grant was made in accordance with Baylor’s wishes from his Community Foundation fund. Seminary trustee and Foundation board member Dorothy S. Ridings was also present.

Legacy by Design You can use a variety of planning tools, from simple to complex, to create your legacy fund in the Community Foundation. • Bequests through a Will or Trust: Retain the use of all assets during your lifetime, and the gift is made upon your death. A simple way to support your favorite causes forever.

• Life Insurance: You can name the Foundation as the owner and/or the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. You may receive a tax deduction, and in some cases additional premium payments may be tax-deductible.

• Retirement Plans: Simply designate the Community Foundation as the beneficiary of your IRA or other retirement plan. You can give all or only a portion of your retirement assets.

• Life Income Gifts: This type of gift allows you to receive an immediate partial tax deduction, and you or a loved one can receive income from that gift for your lifetime or a number of years.

Investment Philosophy

Financial Statement Audit

The Community Foundation of Louisville applies a long-term approach to investing, including maintaining sound investment practices and diversified investment portfolios. In addition to evaluating asset allocation policies, our Board of Directors continues to evaluate our distribution policy for grants from endowments.

In keeping with industry best practices, the Community Foundation of Louisville once again engaged the services of an independent public accounting firm to perform an annual audit of the Foundation’s financial statements for fiscal year 2011. As a part of this audit, the public accounting firm reviews the Foundation’s internal controls and reviews its findings with the Foundation’s Finance & Audit Committee, comprised of Foundation board members and community leaders who are experienced in accounting, finance and technology.

The Foundation’s Investment Committee meets quarterly with our independent investment advisor, Fourth Street Performance Partners, to evaluate investment managers and their performance. They also review potential investment vehicles that would further the diversification of investments and protect the longterm purchasing power of our endowment funds.

About our logo Our logo is a modern interpretation of Louisville’s long-standing symbol, the fleur-de-lis. Blue and red C’s form the core of the fleur-de-lis, representing Connection, Community, Charity, Change. The two distinct colors create a new color in the middle. That’s the power of Coming together in philanthropy—you can Create something new. There are other powerful symbols in the logo as well. Growth is represented by the smaller green shape moving upward into the larger orange shape. Additionally, a flame or candle runs up the middle, evoking feelings of legacy or remembrance.
