On Thursday, October 1, 2015, you will have the opportunity to make your support of The Filson Historical Society go even further! The Filson Historical Society is a proud participant of Give Local Louisville 2015. Give Local Louisville is a 24-hour, online “give day” to support local nonprofits doing great work in our city. For one day, every dollar given to local nonprofits through this online platform will be augmented through proportionate match and prize dollars contributed by the Community Foundation of Louisville; its supporting partners LG&E and KU Energy, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kentucky, Delta Dental of Kentucky, Sam Swope Auto Group, the Martin F. Schmidt and Kate Schmidt Moninger Fund, William O. Alden, Jr., and other anonymous donors.
Online credit card giving will take place here from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, October 1, 2015. Donors who wish to use their Community Foundation Donor Advised Fund or Charitable Checking Fund may do so by submitting a grant request through the Community Foundation of Louisville between Monday, August 3, and no later than 3:00 p.m. on September 25.
Please consider donating on Thursday, October 1st to help us take advantage of the matching dollars and the prizes that will be awarded throughout the day. You can check on our progress by following us on Facebook and Twitter and by checking Give Local Louisville's Leaderboard.
