Ketchikan Community Foundation Announces 2019 Grant Program
January 18, 2019
This year, KCF expects to award approximately $22,000 to qualified nonprofit organizations serving the Ketchikan area. KCF has chosen three community funding categories that rotate each year, and this year’s category is “Physical and Emotional Support.”
This is the fourth year that KCF has awarded grants to local nonprofits. Since 2016, KCF has awarded a total of $61,759 to 21 non-profit organizations.
The Ketchikan Community Foundation (www.ketchikancf.org) is a permanent charitable fund for the communities in the Ketchikan area and is one of 10 Affiliate Community Foundations under the umbrella of The Alaska Community Foundation. KCF’s goal is to grow an endowment to strengthen the charitable nonprofits serving greater Ketchikan. KCF is focused on keeping resources invested locally in a permanent charitable fund to help meet today’s needs and provide a reliable source of funding for the future.
The Alaska Community Foundation (www.alaskacf.org) was established in 1995 and is a statewide platform for philanthropy that connects people who care with causes that matter. Managing more than $86 million in assets and over 430 funds for the benefit of Alaskans, ACF and their Affiliates grants $3 million to $5 million each year to charitable projects and nonprofit organizations across the state. ACF’s mission is to inspire the spirit of giving and connect people, organizations, and causes to strengthen Alaska’s communities now and forever.
