Nerd Louisville is a registered 501(c)3 charitable non-profit.
Why Nerd Louisville?
Nerd Louisville was established after we discovered there was a vibrant and active community of people in Louisville interested in all types of nerdy activities, but that many of those people were scattered around the city in disparate and sometimes competing groups. We wanted to change that, so we created Nerd Louisville to make it easier for nerds to connect and become friends.
Nerd Louisville’s goal isn’t to supersede or absorb the already existing nerd groups in Louisville, but to create a platform that enables groups to connect with each other and grow organically.
Since our inception, we have fostered a strong and interconnected community, established an annual tabletop gaming convention (Nerdlouvia), and developed a charitable initiative (Next-gen Nerds) to support at-risk youth.
Nerd Louisville’s mission is to make Louisville, Kentucky the most awesome nerd city in the universe. We do that by:
- Fostering a sense of community
- Providing a hub to connect local nerds
- Promoting Louisville as a nerd destination
- Educating, inspiring, and empowering local youth.
We depend on your investment.
