Kent Community Foundation Programs
Over 95% of your contributions go directly to the recipients of our grants and scholarships for arts and education within the greater Kent area. Administrative costs are minimized because the Foundation is managed by volunteer board members and by using in-kind contributions from local businesses. Kent has grown significantly in the last decade, so there is an increasing demand for funding.
The Foundation is grateful to the Muckleshoot Charity Fund for their generous gift of $5000 this year to expand our efforts to enhance arts and education in the communities of Kent and Covington.
The Kent Community Foundation awards various scholarships each year to deserving students who wish to pursue higher education.
The Kent Community Foundation grant objective is to promote educational activities that inspire learning and/or cultural activities that encourage an appreciation for the arts. For schools, the grant should be for an extension or enhancement to the standard curriculum.
