Founded in 2018, the Crusade Engagement Council is the young professional subdivision of the WHAS Crusade for Children, a Louisville-based nonprofit organization that has raised more than $200,000,000 since 1954 to support programs that help children with special needs. The CEC raises awareness of the Crusade’s impact on the children of Kentucky and Indiana to a new generation of individuals who wish to give their time and resources to help children in our local communities. We are building genuine relationships through volunteering, professional networking, community awareness and fundraising opportunities.
