KAFASI receives 2023 Unrestricted Funds Grants

Published On: July 17th, 2023

The Kenosha Community Foundation awarded grants totaling $56,600 to 18 nonprofit organizations conducting programming in Kenosha County.

The awards ranged between $1,000-$4,500 and derive from an investment pool reserved for unrestricted grantmaking.  Successful proposals reflected responsive educational, arts and nature-based programming, to “bricks and mortar” building repairs.

According to Executive Director, Amy Greil, “This year’s 25 grant applications made for a rigorously competitive grant cycle.  We extend ‘thanks’ to the diverse applicants for sharing information and insights into current day needs and priorities.  Likewise, the KCF grants committee merits special appreciation for the extensive time commitment required to arrive at these determinations.  Fortunately, some of KCF’s legacy donors had the foresight to direct their financial gifts toward unrestricted endowment funds—the fund “type” most desirable—so that KCF has this perpetual source of funds for competitive grantmaking.  I am confident that the 2023 grant awards will leave outsized impacts, cutting across all segments of our community.

The Kenosha Community Foundation, organized in 1926 as a tax-exempt public charity, actively manages permanent endowments established by individuals, families, and business organizations. The Community Foundation manages over $14 million in endowment funds and awarded over $750,000 in grants, scholarships, sponsorships, and gifts to Kenosha area not-for-profit organizations and students in 2020.

    Many of us are who we are today because of the Matriarchs and Patriarchs we have had in our lives they showed us the way. I know I wouldn’t be if it weren’t for them! I like to call them our TREASURES. They’ve shown us how to live, how to give, our history, its
