YPAL Foundation

YPAL Foundation is the foundational support for the Young Professional Association of Louisville (YPAL). The mission is to provide leadership development, educational opportunities and philanthropic support to Louisville’s Young Professionals for the benefit of the local community. Within its first year, YPAL Foundation built the first Platinum LEED home in Kentucky in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville. And, in 2013, YPAL and YPAL Foundation created the Emerging Leaders Program.

YPAL Foundation strives to enable metro Louisville’s young professionals to give back to their community through the investment of time, talent and resources. YPAL Foundation works with YPAL on special events, volunteer opportunities and fundraising actions.

Introducing our new Young Professional Development Fund:

The YPAL Foundation (“Foundation”) seeks to support young professionals in the Greater Louisville community in their pursuit to further their careers and passion projects by providing grants to cover a portion of expenses related to books or courses (i.e. leadership or professional development courses, etc.). The funds may only be used for programming outside of YPAL and not YPAL sponsored programming such as the Emerging Leaders Program.

Knowing that the Louisville community offers valuable programming, the Young Professional Development Fund is created to connect young professionals with the community at large. The Foundation retains discretion in awarding grants.

This award is NOT limited to YPAL members.

The YP Development grants will be awarded quarterly. Applications for the 2022 year are due on the following dates:

May 15
August 15
November 15

You should hear back within a few weeks after the deadline has passed. Please spread the word to all of your young professional friends and check out the application today!
