Foundation posts list of causes seeking funding


Each year Kitsap Community Foundation solicits grant requests, and each year it receives far more proposals than it can afford to fund.

To help bring exposure, and potentially dollars, to these local causes,  the foundation has posted 50 grant applications on its website for the public to view. Donors are invited to contribute to the campaigns of their choice.

“Our mission is to connect people who care to causes that matter,” foundation Executive Director Kol Medina said in a news release.“By posting these grant applications online and encouraging the public to help fund them, we are directly completing our mission.”

Medina said the foundation received requests totaling $226,000, more than double the amount the foundation will be able to fund through its endowment.

Grant application summaries will be showcased on the foundation’s website through April 6. You can view the applications here, along with instructions for donating.

Kitsap Great Give, a 24-hour fundraising drive for local nonprofits, is scheduled for May 5.
