The 2020 Community Grants total $144,500 and fund 27 nonprofits for various community programs and for help with current economic challenges. These grants complement funding awarded by CFFK and its donor partners during the last 30 days to assist those affected by COVID-19’s economic impacts.
The 27 new grants were fast-tracked from applications to CFFK’s 2020 Community Grant Program. The program provides support in areas including health and human services, education, environment, arts and more. The demand for support unfortunately far outweighed available funds, with CFFK receiving more than 75 funding requests. CFFK’s Grant Committee reviewed and selected proposals for funding.
