Message from the KFW Board
This year we supported the communications goals of the Foundation by integrating social media and digital outreach to increase the visibility and accessibility of the Foundation. We strengthened our Board processes and implemented policies that promote financial health for the Foundation. We implemented an orientation procedure with an intentional focus on the recommendations from the Council on Foundations for transparency and accountability, and a new Conflict of Interest Policy and Annual Disclosure form.
We welcomed new board members and said farewell to members who have transitioned out of their board terms. We thank these powerful and wise women for their years of service. We are so appreciative that they will continue to be part of our KFW Community.
These past few years have brought significant change for KFW. With change comes new energy and drive along with recognition that cultural change is a long-term commitment. KFW is here for the long haul! We will continue our work to create the Kentucky that works for all of us by building a solid foundation that will open the way to a vibrant future.
In Peace and Power,
the KFW Board
KFW Board Members Showcase “This I Believe”
At a recent retreat our wise and wonderful KFW Board spent time contemplating their role in sustaining the mission and values of KFW. Board members participated in a “This I Believe” exercise to reflect each person’s personal vision for KFW and how she could create connections with our community. No two statements were identical, but our word cloud pictured below provides an indication that our board shares one omnipresent goal.
