Grants & Community Projects

As an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation, the Kodiak Community Foundation’s (KCF) goal is to support projects of importance to our community and that will help us all become better stewards of the land. We are continually listening and learning about what is important to you.

We use proceeds from our growing permanent endowment to award yearly grants to support charitable organizations and programs on the Kodiak Archipelago. Grants support a broad range of community needs, including health and wellness, education, the great outdoors, arts and culture, and community development. We seek projects that have the potential to impact a broad range of residents and show collaboration with other organizations.

Please feel free to contact any member of the Advisory Board if you have a project you hope we’ll support.
