The vision of the NAWBO Louisville Foundation is to be the leading women's organization for developing educational and outreach programs for students of business and entrepreneurs.

  • To provide scholarships/awards to entrepreneurs and students;
  • To provide outreach programs to emerging entrepreneurs and business owners;
  • To provide business educational opportunities for the general public;
  • To encourage, support and educate those who own and operate businesses; and
  • To collaborate with other 501(c)(3) organizations that complement the Foundation.


In furtherance of these objectives, the Foundation intends to develop and offer educational seminars and training opportunities for the general public, develop scholarship programs for leadership development and training for entrepreneurs, and develop scholarship programs and awards for entrepreneurs.
