St. Vincent de Paul launches new fund to help NKY families

By Lorie Hailey

COVINGTON, Ky.St. Vincent de Paul of Northern Kentucky has launched a new fund in partnership with Horizon Community Funds to help St. Vincent de Paul continue and expand its impact in Northern Kentucky.

The Northern Kentucky Council of St. Vincent de Paul is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and a chapter of the international organization. St. Vincent de Paul serves the less fortunate in Northern Kentucky with basic necessities, helping families bridge a gap in their ability to meet their monthly obligations due to a shortfall in income. They provide services to those in need residing in 28 parish or Conference communities located in the counties of Kenton, Boone, Campbell, Carroll, Grant and Pendleton.

“This partnership with Horizon Community Funds will provide another avenue for donors to support our Vincentian volunteers in providing person-to-person service to those who are struggling to make ends meet,” said Karen Zengel, executive director of St. Vincent de Paul of Northern Kentucky. “When we are able to help a family bridge a gap, we provide hope and encouragement to continue moving forward to a better life. We can only provide this hope with the help of our community. We are thankful for this community platform to support our outreach.”

Fund partnerships with Horizon Community Funds provide a flexible way for donors to support their preferred nonprofit organization or charitable effort. Donors can make an endowed gift to support the mission of the nonprofit organization for generations to come or can opt to make a non-endowed gift that provides funding for needs as they arise in Northern Kentucky. Horizon Community Funds offers donors and fundholders a deep connection to Northern Kentucky, including its nonprofits and needs.

Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky was established as a community foundation in 2017 by Northern Kentucky leaders. Its mission is to unite resources to raise the quality of life for all people in the Northern Kentucky community. Learn more at horizonfunds.org.
