World Trade Center Kentucky Foundation

A nonprofit organization

Did you know that Kentucky exported more than $34 billion worth of goods and services last year? While some Kentucky companies engaged in international trade are large and have trained staff to guide them, there are many small- to medium-size enterprises who need trade advisory support. Whether it is navigating the world market, understanding complex regulations and taxes, or handling shipping issues, the World Trade Center Kentucky (WTC-KY) is here to help.

The World Trade Center Kentucky Foundation supports the WTC-KY so it may remain the leading provider of trade education, trade advisory information, and trade missions across the state. Each year, the WTC-KY responds to trade service requests, offers on-site trade support, and organizes international trade education programs covering topics ranging from international sales contracts to market entry strategies. We help with both importing and exporting. In addition, the WTC-KY conducts trade missions and Washington, D.C. trade fly-ins, which allow Kentucky businesses to explore a market through site visits, business matchmaking, and introductions to government officials. The WTC-KY Foundation helps to ensure that WTC-KY's programs and services reach individuals and companies throughout the state who are interested in growing trade in the Commonwealth.

One of our newest efforts to reach those interested in international trade is our recently launched podcast: This Global Trade Adventure. It is available via our website or wherever you download your podcasts. Funding raised during Give for Good Louisville will support this programming and other training programs.
