 …and other generous supporters.

Kentucky to the World is larger than series of speaker each year. There are many more people coming to our attention that we want everyone to know about. Our plans are to house online all the stories we gather, create a mentorship program and to one day extend the series to cities across Kentucky. 

Help us share these stories with a donation, and we’ll help show the world what Kentucky is capable of achieving!


For becoming a Friend of Kentucky to the World you will receive recognition at events, your name in the program and advance information about upcoming programs. Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.


Companies who wish to financially support Kentucky to the World (KTW) can become a Business Sponsor of the series at various levels.

Benefits include recognition at KTW events, on KTW pages of the website, e-blasts that reach the KTW audience online, plus additional KTW benefits as developed for each event.
