What is the GLPF?
One of the most unifying aspects in the life and health of a community is the pride that it feels for its people and for their accomplishments. That idea was the catalyst for the development of the Greater Louisville Pride Foundation (GLPF) in 2001. Its purpose is to build pride within the local community and enhance Louisville’s image as an exciting city – for residents, tourists, business visitors and anyone passing through via the interstate system – by recognizing and honoring the city’s famous sons, daughters and events. It is governed by a volunteer board and relies upon the support and participation of additional community volunteers and businesses to fulfill its mission.
