Capital Campaign


Help the DELTA Foundation establish a permanent home for themselves and other like-minded non-profits in Portland

DELTA Foundation is seeking to purchase the property they currently rent when it goes up for sale later this year. This is the next step in their vision to transform lives by helping at-risk young athletes in Louisville obtain the tools necessary to be successful academically, socially and athletically. The 35,000 square foot campus is also home to Portland Avenue Community Trust, A One All-stars, and One Hundred Black Men of Louisville. As such, the campus has become a hub of free and enriching activities for underserved youth and families in Portland. But all of that could change when the campus goes up for sale later this year.

DELTA Foundation is seeking $1.2 million to purchase the Portland Depot (formerly the Portland Christian School) located at 2508 Portland Avenue.

Ownership of the building would allow DELTA to:

  • Utilize more green space around the building for outdoor recreation.
  • Make needed capital improvements to make the space more effective and functional for existing and future occupants.
  • Create shared community spaces, like conference rooms that would be free to the tenants and other local non-profits.
  • Invest rental fees back into programming.

Imagine a safe, creative space in which underserved youth can receive academic support, athletic training, martial arts instruction, and arts and humanities education – all FREE and right in their neighborhood. With your help, in six months we can begin bringing this vision to life!

As the largest rental client in terms of both revenue and square-footage, DELTA would like to purchase the campus in order to preserve this built-in community, allowing for continued and new collaborations between organizations that ultimately benefit neighborhood youth. The property includes unique spaces currently sitting vacant, ready to be utilized in innovative ways.

The possibilities for the Portland Depot are endless

Imaginative Uses for the Space include:

  • Kitchen – provide culinary lessons or inspire a youth-led entrepreneurial endeavor like a catering company or bakery
  • Cafeteria – open space to be used for a dance studio
  • Wood Shop – ideal for vocational programming

In order to make this vision a reality, DELTA needs to raise $1.2 million by the end of October.

Naming Opportunities for the Campus, Conference Room, Kitchen, and Woodshop are available starting at an investment of $100,000.
