Kitsap Community Foundation accepting grant applications

The Kitsap Community Foundation is accepting applications through Jan. 27 for its 2014 competitive grant cycle, according to Executive Director Kol Medina.

Medina said the Foundation is offering three different types of grants: community grants, which are available for any 501(c)(3) organization doing work in Kitsap County; grants for foster children and family reconciliation; and grants for youth mentoring.

“This year, during the month of March, the Foundation will be posting a summary of each community grant program application online and inviting the public to help fund the applications,” Medina said.

Grant decisions will be made by the end of April. Grant recipients will be given a ticket to attend the Kitsap Foundation Community’s Celebration of Philanthropy on May 16, when the grant awards will be announced.

Medina said the Competitive Grants Program favors investing in organizations that achieve measureable outcomes that have positive impacts in our community.

The applications are being taken online only. More information, including directions on how to apply, visit
