Overview:

The Darcy Blair Memorial Educational Fund was established by the family of Dr. Darcy Blair with the many contributions made by her teachers, patients and friends who remembered her as someone who felt she had a responsibility to be a positive influence in the world. The fund had been conceptualized by Dr. Blair several years before she was diagnosed with cancer. She had written a plan to create an opportunity fund that would help girls pursue an interest in addition to their formal education, which would otherwise not be possible such as extra-curricular or life experience activities, travel or studying a foreign language. This scholarship does not cover direct tuition costs.

Community Foundation of Louisville is the largest charitable foundation in Kentucky with $434 million in assets and more than 1,350 different funds, each with a charitable purpose defined by its donors. In 2014, the Community Foundation made over 8,000 grants totaling $45 million to local, national and international nonprofits.

A strong advocate for philanthropy across the Commonwealth, the Community Foundation of Louisville has a network of affiliate foundations, each working to support philanthropy in their region.
