2017 Grant Opportunities from the Foundation’s Field of Interest Funds

The Kenosha Community Foundation announces that local not-for-profit organizations can now apply for 2017 grants from four of the funds we manage – we are seeking proposals to be funded from the following:

OMC Legacy Fund
LaFave Family Fund
Women’s Fund
Kenosha Arts Fund

In 2016, the Foundation awarded 20 grants, totaling just over $39,000, from these four funds. The grants awarded from these four funds ranged from $500 to $5,000, the average grant was $1,900.

Applications must be received by the Foundation no later than 4 p.m. Friday, September 30, 2016.

A committee of volunteers from around Kenosha County will help select award recipients. Grant awards will be announced in January 2017.

For additional questions, contact email@kenoshafoundation.org, or call 262-654-2412.

NOTE: Applications for 2017 grants from the Kenosha Community Foundation’s Unrestricted Funds will be released in December 2016.
