Beshear Calls For Private Sector Help With Needs

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear has signed an executive
order creating what he calls the Kentucky Commission on
Philanthropy to help provide important services at a time when
state government is struggling with financial problems.
The Democratic governor said he wants the commission to enlist
private-sector partners to focus additional resources on the
state's most challenging issues.
Kentucky has nearly 850 private foundations that hand out more
than $120 million a year. Beshear is calling on those foundations
to consider rallying around common goals.
He said state government, under current economic conditions,
can't meet the demand for all the services needed in Kentucky.
