The Appalachian Rural Development Philanthropy Initiative (ARDPI) is sponsoring a free regional training seminar on Wednesday, June 19, in Morehead for attorneys, accountants, insurance agents, and other professional advisors to learn more about charitable giving in Kentucky.


The seminar, led by Allison Peck Lankford, vice president and general counsel for the Blue Grass Community Foundation, will be held from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Morehead Conference Center, 111 East First Street, in Morehead.


The seminar will focus on how communities across Southern and Eastern Kentucky can utilize charitable endowments to capture local wealth and invest it in life-changing endeavors.


Lankford will share her expert knowledge on charitable giving and planning. She works directly with donors and their advisors to help them develop customized philanthropic plans to meet their charitable giving goals.
