Paducah is grateful for the generosity of the individuals, families, and businesses dedicated to the community’s quality of life.

Paducah has been honored and supported by significant donations through the years that have helped shape our community including Mrs. Pat Brockenborough for the development of the Pat & Jim Brockenborough Rotary Health Park, an endowment from the Boyles estate to extend the Greenway Trail and provide matching funds for grants, and the creation of the Peck Education Trail at Noble Park funded by the estate of J. Lane Peck. Furthermore, the original donation of land from Robert Noble established Bob Noble Park, a centerpiece for our entire community.

Mayor George Bray said, “Paducah’s city government touches many aspects of a citizen’s life including providing the parks where our children play and grow up, the public works department that provides a variety of refuse collection and beautification services, and the accredited police and professional fire departments that are there when a family may need them the most. We work to provide a variety of amenities and services while being fiscally responsible with taxpayer dollars.”

“However, we are grateful for the manner in which our community has been shaped by grants and donations that enhance the quality of life for those who live, work, and visit our beautiful river city. Anyone can help support our efforts by making a tax-deductible contribution to the City of Paducah. Please consider donating to honor a life well-lived or to acknowledge an important milestone. Certain donations can be restricted to be used as the donor deems,” added Bray.

Charitable contributions to the City of Paducah, as a government unit, are tax-deductible under section 170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code when made for a public purpose.
