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.

Your commitment makes a difference! These young people benefit from your generosity.

“The highlights of my camp experience were meeting new friends and taking my knowledge to brand new levels.”

“Having the support of the KAGE Foundation made her feel like she mattered, like she was a person of value to someone other than her family. It helped her to realize that one person / group can make a difference!”
