There are two ways to help gifted education in Kentucky - a gift to the KAGE Foundation and/or a gift to the KAGE association.

A Gift to the KAGE Foundation

THE KAGE FOUNDATION, established in 1984, provides financial assistance to qualified elementary and secondary students throughout Kentucky who, because of financial need, would otherwise be discouraged from participating in the summer gifted programs offered by Kentucky’s public universities. Financial assistance to the summer gifted programs is awarded to highly qualified students primarily on the basis of individual financial need. Your generous gift to the Kentucky Association for Gifted Education’s (KAGE) Foundation makes these awards possible.  These students want an opportunity to learn new challenging curricula and to spend time with their intellectual peers.  It’s an opportunity that could easily be missed because of a family’s limited financial resources.

The KAGE Foundation is non-profit, and each contributor is entitled to a tax deduction if applicable. All contributors will receive recognition in the KAGE Update, and in the Foundation’s annual report, unless anonymity is requested. You do make a difference. The KAGE Foundation relies on donations from individuals like you and gifts from businesses.  Your commitment makes a difference!  These young people benefit from your generosity.

Lynette Baldwin Memorial Fund

Lynette devoted her life to students with gifts and talents, their educators, and their parents.

Her tireless advocacy for Kentucky’s gifted and talented children impacted countless children and young people, their educators, and their families. Whether walking the capitol halls in Frankfort or Washington, D.C., organizing timely professional development opportunities for GT educators, overseeing the KAGE office and KAGE Board, and so much more, Lynette embodied the invaluable mission of KAGE on all levels. She was respected locally, state-wide, and nationally for her leadership.

It is with great pleasure that the KAGE Foundation created a fund in her honor. We invite you to help us honor Lynette and her life’s work.
