Kitsap Community Foundation now accepting grant applications

The Kitsap Community Foundation is now accepting online applications for its 2014 competitive grant cycle.

The deadline for applications is Jan. 27.

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

The foundation is offering three different types of grants: community grants, which are available for any registered nonprofit organization doing work in Kitsap County; grants for foster children and family reconciliation; and grants for youth mentoring.

In March, the foundation will be posting a summary of each community grant application online and inviting the public to help fund the applications.

Grant decisions will be made by the end of April, foundation officials said, and grant recipients will be invited to the Kitsap Foundation Community’s Celebration of Philanthropy on May 16, at which the grants will be announced.

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