The Nest in Lexington

The nest provides a safe place for education, counseling and support to children and families in crisis. Their programs focus on the prevention of physical and sexual abuse, neglect of children, and the stabilization of the family unit. They do a lot for families in crisis not only in Lexington, but in the central KY area.

As an organization we will be collecting items to help out the NEST in the upcoming year as they continue to work with families in crisis in our community. They are always in need of diapers, shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant, razors, lotion, feminine hygiene products, toothpaste, tooth brushes etc You can find more information about their services and the items they are in need of at this website.


KASFAA LEAD was established in 2018 to create scholarship opportunities for student workers and professional development opportunities for new and continuing financial aid administrators. Each spring, we will be raising money to help support our friends and colleagues reach their professional goals. It may be a scholarship for a continuing student worker in your own office, it may be a registration fee for a SASFAA New Aid Officer Workshop, or it may be an opportunity for a paid registration fee for a SASFAA Enrollment Management Forum or NASFAA Leadership Conference and Expo in Washington, DC. The destination is up to you.

These scholarship and professional development opportunities are not solely funded by the dollars we raise during our annual charity event. Previous Executive Boards have agreed to place an additional funds into the scholarship account to ensure it's growth for years to come. We believe, as a non-profit, that in good financial years, we need to reinvest back into the folks that continue to make KASFAA so successful in meeting the needs of Kentucky students and families. We believe in you. We are ready to invest in you.

KASFAA has a legacy and it is inside each of you. Decades from now, how many folks will be able to stand up and say that KASFAA assisted them in achieving their professional goals? This is the start of something big! Be a part of it. After all, KASFAA is our family. Let’s do this together.
