A recognized leader in Kentucky’s nonprofit sector, Grayson has served on numerous boards of organizations dedicated to improving education, promoting healthy family relationships and preserving the Commonwealth’s natural resources and heritage.
In addition to the Kentucky Philanthropy Initiative, she serves on the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence Board of Governors, Kentucky Historical Society Governing Board, Metropolitan Club Board of Governors, United Way Northern Kentucky Action Council, and Trinity Episcopal Church Vestry.
In 2011, Grayson received the Northern Kentucky Champion for Education Award and is an alumna of Leadership Northern Kentucky.
She resides in Boone County with her husband, Trey, and their two daughters, Alex and Kate.
“I am honored to serve on the Board of Directors for the Kentucky Philanthropy Initiative, a leader in promoting and supporting community philanthropy across our Commonwealth,” said Grayson. “By encouraging a vibrant culture of giving in our many diverse communities, we are able to empower all Kentuckians to help improve the lives of their neighbors and address their local challenges and needs.”
“Nancy’s enthusiasm for philanthropy and commitment to creating a greater awareness of its enduring benefits is evident,” Rider added. “She joins a group of like-minded directors intent on improving our quality of living now, and for generations to come.”
KPI was founded in 2009 to advocate for private strategic philanthropic investment in Kentucky. In 2010, KPI commissioned a transfer of wealth study, which identified an intergenerational wealth transfer of $707 billion over the next 50 years and was instrumental in the passage of the Endow Kentucky tax credit.

As a result of this study and the Endow Kentucky tax credit, KPI launched the Give Back Kentucky campaign, encouraging Kentuckians to count our communities among their heirs. The campaign has a goal of capturing 5 percent of this wealth in the commonwealth’s certified community foundations for long-term economic development and quality of life of our communities.

KPI is developing programs to reach young people to develop a lifelong culture of giving back and grow a viable statewide network of advocates. More information about KPI can be found at www.kyphilanthropy.com or “Like” the Kentucky Philanthropy Facebook page to stay connected.
