Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear on Monday announced a $380,000 donation from the Team Kentucky Fund to 19 nonprofit organizations throughout the Commonwealth.

Each nonprofit organization is receiving an equal split of the donation, at $20,000 a piece. 

According to Gov. Beshear, these 19 non-profits share common goals of preventing homelessness and/or assisting families impacted by the opioid epidemic.

Several of the nonprofits are here in the Tri-State area, like Mountain Comprehensive Care Center, which has locations in Owensboro and Madisonville, and the Daniel Pitino Shelter which is located in Owensboro.

The 19 organizations splitting the $380K donation are:

“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.
