Who will retain the rights to the Documentary? 

KET Foundation, Inc., ParkerLaneLLC, Inc., and the Community Foundation of Louisville, Inc. acknowledge and agree that the KMI Alumni Association shall forever own the KMI Documentary Project and all copyrights thereto.  Additionally, the KMI Alumni Association shall have the right to assign its rights in and to the KMI Documentary Project to others and to further market, sell, and distribute the materials in any manner whatsoever.  Kentucky Educational Television will receive broadcast rights only and no ancillary rights to the production.

 

What happens if total contributions exceed the total cost of producing a sixty minute documentary?

 

 Funds received by the Community Foundation of Louisville, Inc. in excess of documentary project costs will be granted to the Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice, Florida for the benefit of the Kentucky Military Institute Memorial Foundation (to be established) for the benefit of the Venice Museum and Archives for their collection and display of Kentucky Military Institute memorabilia and for the maintenance and expansion of the Kentucky Military Institute Archives.

 

Why the Gulf Coast Community Foundation of Venice?

 

The Gulf Coast Community Foundation (501c3) in Venice manages several funds for the benefit of the Venice Museum and Archives.  The aforementioned agreement between the KMI Alumni Association and the Community Foundation of Louisville, Inc. calls for the Alumni Association to name a secondary beneficiary who would receive any excess funds that might remain in the KMI Fund at the Community Foundation of Louisville, Inc. after all documentary production expenses have been paid.  After conversation with the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, we recommend that any excess funds remaining in the KMI Fund at the Community Foundation of Louisville, Inc. be granted to the Gulf Coast Community Foundation with instructions to establish and fund the Kentucky Military Institute Memorial Foundation.  Those granted funds would be designated for use by the Venice Museum and Archives’ collection and display of Kentucky Military Institute memorabilia and for the maintenance and expansion of the Kentucky Military Institute Archives.

 What are the future plans of the Venice Museum and Archives?

According to Venice Museum and Archives Curator and Manager, James Hagler, the Venice Museum and Archives is in the midst of a multi-million-dollar fund drive after receiving a $1 million seed gift in 2011.  Their goal is to raise $3-$5 million to be used for a 10,000 square feet expansion of the Tea Room.  The KMI Story will be one of four prominent displays (Railroad Union, Ringling Brothers Circus, and Early Venice Pioneers are the other three.) emphasized by the museum.  Hagler was asked if KMI alumni could donate their KMI memorabilia to the Venice Museum and Archives now and in the future.  His answer was an enthusiastic; “Yes, glad to have it”!

The bottom line here is that alums have an option to donate their Kentucky Military Institute memorabilia to the Venice Museum and Archives in person now or later via their will or living trust documents.  Additionally or alternatively, alums can also include a bequest to the Gulf Coast Community Foundation/Kentucky Military Institute Memorial Foundation (once established) as part of their estate planning.  These options are in addition to our current options of donating or contributing to the Kentucky Country Day's Foundation and the University of Kentucky’s KMI Archives.
