You Have the Power to Make a Difference!

JFCS and the Navigate Enterprise Center have posted a Power 2 Give project, soliciting donations to create a revolving loan pool, specifically to help struggling artists get the start-up capital they need on terms they can afford to repay.

A one-time donation will help Louisville’s low income artists empower themselves, and pass on the good fortune to other artists in the future. JFCS provides low-income entrepreneurs the help they need to become economically self-sufficient, independent business owners who create jobs and help build Louisville’s one-of-a-kind culture.

To support this project, please visit
