Each year, The Center for Rural Development provides leadership opportunities for approximately 260 middle school and high school students. With a primary service area of 45-counties in Southern and Eastern Kentucky, we pride ourselves on being able to reach such a wide audience. However, the programs we offer would not be possible without the support of donors like you.

You can help us make a difference by donating to The Center’s Rogers Scholars, Rogers Explorers, or Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute Programs. As future leaders of our region, the young people we serve have and will continue to make a big difference in their communities. We encourage you to join our and Congressman Hal Rogers’ belief that “no young person should have to leave home to find his or her future.”

There are several ways to make your donation- online, by mail or by phone. Please remember to specify which program you would like to make your donation to, otherwise your donation will be distributed between the programs.
