Louisville Nonprofits Awarded $1.8 Million Through the Humana Foundation’s Community Partners Program

2021 investments support The Foundation’s commitment to equitable giving and strengthening the health and well-being of Louisville

The Humana Foundation, philanthropic arm of Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) for the past 40 years, is awarding $1.8 million to several nonprofit organizations in Louisville as part of its ongoing Community Partners Program. The program started in 2018 and with today’s announcement, brings the total amount awarded to community-based organizations to more than $10 million. The investments support The Foundation’s focus on addressing social determinants of health and driving greater health equity for all who live in the Louisville area.

The recipients represent smaller nonprofits that join a group of 30 organizations receiving funding in this year’s program. The awards will support key initiatives that drive sustainable change while addressing disparities in education, community engagement, access-to-care and financial asset security, to name a few. Today’s announcement expands The Foundation’s reach into multiple dimensions of health and deeper collaboration within the nonprofit community.

“At such a critical time in our community, we’re encouraged that the most vulnerable and marginalized people across Kentuckiana will be helped through the tools, resources and commitment of these non-profit partners,” said Caraline Coats, Interim CEO of The Humana Foundation. “Our 2021 Community Partners Program award recipients will empower a diverse group of partners who are dedicated to the collective resilience and life-long success of everyone in our community.”

Together, the organizations funded by The Humana Foundation’s 2021 Community Partners Program focus on a wide variety of inequities that impact the Louisville community. And, they represent both new and long-standing commitments to the people in the community who need support. The following nonprofit organizations will receive Community Partners Program funding from The Humana Foundation in grant amounts varying from $40,000 to $250,000:
