Community Foundation Grant Activity

KCFCommunity Foundation looking for grant ideas

The Keweenaw Community Foundation is beginning its latest funding cycle for grants to help children in sixth through 12th grades. For this period, there is $13,170 available, with as much as $3,000 per applicant.

The KCF received a $500,000 endowment from the Kellogg Foundation in the mid-1990s specifically for youth needs, said Joan Chadde, co-coordinator of the KCF’s Youth Advisory Council. The interest on the endowment has been used for grants.

The KCF is always looking for more middle- and high-school students to join, Chadde said.
