Kenosha Community Foundation is seeking applications for its 2022 Creativity By Kids (CBK) Small Grants Program.
Donor Name: Kenosha Community Foundation
County: Kenosha County (WI)
Type of Grant: Grant
Deadline (mm/dd/yyyy): 01/18/2022
Size of the Grant: $3,000 to $3,500
The purpose of the CBK Small Grant program is to provide funds “to groups offering programs in the arts or the understanding of our natural world. It will emphasize cross-cultural and multi-generational programs in both areas, whenever possible.”
Funds for the CBK Grant program are derived from income from two endowment funds at the Foundation – the Clark-Barber Family Fund and the Kubasiewicz Family Trust.
CBK not only means Creativity By Kids (of any age) but it is also derived from the first initials of the names of the Clark, Barber, and Kubasiewicz families – the donors that established the grant program.
Based on the purpose detailed above by the donors, the Foundation welcomes requests for funding for projects/initiatives in one or more of the following areas:
- the arts
- the environment
The Foundation plans to award at least three grants totaling between $3,000 to $3,500 – more grants could be awarded if additional donor contributions are received.
Not-for-profit organizations, government agency, and/or educational institution can apply for the CBK Small Grant program. The award can be used as a contribution to an existing project/initiative or to help start a new initiative.
If the Foundation is interested in supporting the proposal, the organization submitting the proposal may be contacted by the Foundation.
The organization will then have two weeks to answer any follow-up questions and may be required to provide some or all of the following information:
- The organization’s IRS federal tax exemption determination letter (required for not-for-profit organizations and educational institutions).
- Your organization’s employment non-discrimination policy.
- Your organization’s most recent IRS Form 990 (required for not-for-profit organizations).
