It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Cliff Todd on July 14, 2021. Cliff’s generosity allowed JustFundKY to create a permanent endowment for the LGBTQ community in Kentucky. He believed it is the responsibility of each of us to give where we can and acted on this by donating a matching gift to help found JustFundKY.

Mr. Todd speaking at WKU on June 2, 2021.

Cliff’s commitment to LGBTQ Kentuckians inspired many across this state to participate in our work for justice. Never before had the LGBTQ community in Kentucky rallied for a single purpose: an endowment to fund education work around the state. 

For the past ten years, JustFundKY has been able to award education grants across the commonwealth because of Cliff Todd. Among his legacy is a perpetual revenue stream supporting projects promoting fairness for LGBTQ Kentuckians. His gracious, warm smile and unbridled belief that the LGBTQ community in Kentucky is worth putting your money where your mouth is will never be forgotten, especially by the members of his JustFundKY family.  

We will sorely miss Cliff, and appreciate that his reach continues through every project we have and will fund.  We join his family, friends, and all the people touched by Cliff in mourning the loss of a great leader of our community, and honor the life of a man who helped brighten the state for countless LGBTQ Kentuckians.
