APH is supported by local, national, and international funders who ensure the sustainability and growth of our programs and services. The concluding phrase of our mission—for lifelong success—illustrates our commitment to lifetime learning and the promise of infinite opportunities.

We are honored to collaborate with corporate and foundation partners who share this pledge with us.

Local Donor. National Impact.

For more than 160 years, APH has called Louisville “home,” and our Kentucky donors hold a special place in our hearts. We are proud to be a part of what makes Louisville a one-of-a-kind city.

Included in the listing of corporate and foundation partners are a significant group of Kentucky supporters, and we are privileged to partner with them.
