“This gift wouldn’t be possible without the incredible generosity of Kentuckians. Going forward, let’s keep the spirit of the Team Kentucky Fund alive by donating directly to these amazing organizations or other nonprofits in our communities that speak to our hearts,” said Gov. Beshear. "Especially as we’ve faced this coronavirus pandemic, these agencies have helped our people most in need. We are proud to be able to help them in turn.”
These same nonprofit organizations will also receive in equal shares any funds remaining from the Team Kentucky Fund, which is closing pending applications have been addressed.
