FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Tuesday is ‘Kentucky Gives Day,’ an online 24-hour annual fundraising event bringing nonprofit groups and Kentuckians together for a powerful day of action through the Kentucky Nonprofit Network.
Each year, the event gives people the opportunity to support causes they care about and gives more than 170 participating nonprofits the opportunity to share their amazing stories, all through one giving site.
One of the participating 501 (c) (3) groups is ‘Friends of Lexington Fisher House.’ The foundation is raising money to build a Fisher House at the VA hospital on Leestown Road in Lexington.
A Fisher House is a place where Veterans’ families stay for free while their loved one is in the VA hospital in Lexington. A Fisher House can keep military and veterans’ families from financial hardship so they can focus on what’s important, being at the bedside of their loved one during a medical crisis. A family’s love is good medicine. To learn more about the Lexington Fisher House capital campaign, click here.

Kentucky Gives Day has raised nearly $1.7 million in partnership with nonprofits since it was launched in 2012.
