A Catalyst For Good.

We invest in big ideas to spark innovative solutions.

Investing with conviction.

We move quickly to identify and invest in innovative solutions. With our unique approach of catalytic & risk-tolerant philanthropy, BlueSky leverages our broad network of thought leaders to support our investments. We are proud that we do not have a traditional grant award cycle or structure that limits our ability to invest with conviction.

Led by Rudy Spencer

Rudy joined us from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana, where he was the Chief Strategy & Development Officer. Prior to a professional fundraising career, Rudy worked in a variety of public and private sectors learning how their operations impact social policy.

He developed a love of philanthropy through volunteer service, most notably at Metro United Way, where he was the 2018 Community Campaign Co-Chair that raised $26 million dollars for charities in the Louisville, KY region.

Rudy’s leadership & contributions have been widely recognized. Most recently, he was named the 2021 Young Philanthropist of the Year by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (Louisville), and in 2020 he was named a national BMe Community Genius Fellow.

He lives in Louisville, Kentucky with his wife and daughter. He received his MSW from the University of Michigan, and he is a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) and Project Management Professional (PMP).

Transformational levels of philanthropy.

Our approach is to invest in opportunities that create sustainable, long-term impact.
