Thank you to Community Foundation of Fayette County (CFFC) and everyone who helps to build a stronger Fayette County.


Touchstone is celebrating our 50th Anniversary this year! We’re grateful for all the ways you’ve helped to sustain us through the years and that you’re here to share the organization’s exciting present and future. With your help, we know it will be another 50 years full of creativity and connection.


Our demonstrated ability to nurture and inspire creativity and connection are critical resources for our community and at the heart of the Touchstone experience. This takes many forms: an artist realizing excellence in their craft and professional success; a first-time creator discovering a hidden talent; or a veteran taking steps toward healing from life-altering trauma. Knowing the value of the

Touchstone experience, we work hard to provide new and diverse opportunities for engagement.


We’re ready to start the next 50 years by expanding our commitment to creativity, connection, and community through campus renewal, investing in local and regional impact, and much more. But we need your help.


Your generous gift to Touchstone as part of the Fayette Gives Challenge on or before November 10th is the help we need right now. Every donation and donor makes a difference. Last year, with the help of individuals like you, and 100% board participation, we maximized this opportunity with more than 150 donors helping us to claim a significant portion of the Fayette Gives Bonus Pool.

  1. Checks must be made out to CFFC (Community Foundation of Fayette County)
