The Marksbury Family Foundation started in 2009 primarily to give back to the University of Kentucky; the alma mater of our founder, Davis Marksbury. What started as a way to give back to the UK School of Engineering has evolved over the years. In the 2010s our foundation’s focus was on educational opportunities in Central Kentucky. As we are moving further into the 2020s, our foundation has expanded once more with a broader mission and new criteria search.

We are interested in innovative projects that result in sustainable and measurable growth for individuals, communities, and local economies. We are broadening our search to include all of Kentucky, as well as the Charleston, SC area. We are seeking to partner and collaborate with leading non-profit organizations to design new, financially self-sustaining projects, as well as to expand proven, high-quality programs into new geographical territories.
