As an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation, the Kenai Peninsula Foundation’s (KPF) goal is to support projects that enhance the quality of life for central Kenai Peninsula area residents, addressing immediate needs while working toward long-term improvements. 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 in the central Kenai Peninsula area. 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.
