For 35 years, the Kentucky Resources Council has been a trusted source of legal representation advice, and assistance to individuals, communities, and local governments on a wide range of environmental and energy issues.

Accepting no corporate or government money, and providing legal assistance without charge, KRC relies on individual donations to provide unflinching advocacy for those who live downhill, downwind, and downstream. 

By not accepting corporate or government money to fund our three programs, we eliminate potential conflict of interest that would possibly prevent us from pursuing environmental justice in the court system for all Kentuckians.

Donations are always greatly appreciated to our general operating fund and can be made here.

Our endowment, the Kentucky Resources Foundation, is also an option for making a contribution to support our work. Gifts made to the endowment provide long-range support and enhances stability for the entire organizaiton.

The Kentucky Resources Foundation is operated through the Bluegrass Community Foundation. Just like donations to our annual fund, donations are full tax-deductible and directly support our mission of protecting Kentucky's nautral and built communities. 

Also, your gift to the Kentucky Resources Foundation may even be eligible for tax credit, if given on July 1, through the Endow Kentucky tax credit program.
