Funds will go to 26 agencies in all 120 counties
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Jan. 13, 2015) — Employees of LG&E and KU donated more than $1.7 million during the company’s 2014 annual giving campaign Power of One.
Funds will be allocated to 26 nonprofit organizations in all 120 counties in Kentucky, as well as parts of Indiana and Virginia.
Nearly 70 percent of LG&E and KU employees participate in the campaign through payroll deduction—more than twice the national average for employee participation in charitable giving, the company said.
Since 2005, the employee-driven campaign has raised nearly $17 million through payroll deductions, event fundraisers, direct-to-charity donations and support from the LG&E and KU Foundation.
