What is ARDPI?
The Appalachian Rural Development Philanthropy Initiative (ARDPI) is an ARC-funded initiative that works to build capacity, community and philanthropy in distressed Kentucky counties.This work is committed to helping distressed Kentucky communities create an infrastructure that engages local people in communities and builds the capacity of the region through prudent stewardship of resources, thus supporting the growth of local wealth through permanent community endowments.ARDPI is a shared effort among seven organizations: the Kentucky Philanthropy Initiative, Endow Kentucky, the Blue Grass Community Foundation, the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky, the Foundation for the Tri-State Community, The Center for Rural Development and the Brushy Fork Institute at Berea College.
