LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A celebration of non-profit organizations in our community.

Twenty local organizations received more than $300,000 from the Community Foundation of Louisville Thursday morning.

The grants are meant to help the organizations achieve their missions, operate more effectively, and build long-term sustainability.

"These non-profits and many other non-profits in our community that we weren't able to fund today are really out doing the work that makes the difference in the lives of all of our citizens," said Trisha Finnegan with the Community Foundation. "So we are really honored to join with our partners -- the Lift A Life Foundation, the James Graham Brown Foundation and our Community Foundation donors -- in providing funds that support them doing that work."
