“The year 2021 and early 2022 was a challenging time, and the Kentucky Colonels stepped up to the challenges. Through extremely generous individuals, we were able to increase our regular grant impact for the Good Works Program by over $1 million. This year we are awarding $3.1 million – the most money we have ever been able to spend on the program,” said Commanding General Gary Boschert.

“In addition, the horrible storms that devastated Western Kentucky, Colonels stepped up and donated millions of dollars and we are able to grant $3.7 million for the long-term recovery of the region. Thank you, Colonels, for your generosity and continued support. Your help allows all the Trustees to help impact millions of Kentuckians.”
