COVINGTON, Ky. — Dinsmore Homestead Foundation has established a nonprofit fund with Horizon Community Funds that will allow for a new avenue of giving in support of the foundation and increase awareness of their mission among the community.
“Dinsmore Homestead Foundation does a terrific job of preserving an important part of Northern Kentucky’s history,” said Nancy Grayson, president of Horizon Community Foundation. “The foundation provides a great service through their educational opportunities and cultural and historic research, and we look forward to being a part of their work.”
In 1988, Martha Ferguson Breasted, a sixth-generation Dinsmore, donated her family’s home and 30 acres of land to the Dinsmore Homestead Foundation to be used as a museum. The mission of the Dinsmore Homestead Foundation is to preserve and maintain the physical integrity of the historic Dinsmore Homestead, its buildings, grounds, artifacts, and papers; and to relate the life and role of the family members in local, regional and national history.
“The Dinsmore Homestead has provided ‘a window into Kentucky’s past’ for more than 180 years, first as a family home and, since 1989, as a vibrant museum,” said Barbara Bardes, chair of Dinsmore Homestead Foundation’s Board of Directors. “Partnering with Horizon Community Funds will enable Dinsmore to share the remarkable history of the site with more school children, families and visitors and support our plan for a new Heritage Center.”
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 which provides funding for needs as they arise in Northern Kentucky. Horizon Community Funds offers donors and fund holders a deep connection to Northern Kentucky, including its nonprofits and needs.
Horizon Community Funds of Northern Kentucky is a public charitable 501(c)3 organization 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 www.horizonfunds.org.
