Kitsap Community Foundation

The Kitsap Community Foundation was founded in 1993 by a group of dedicated citizens who wanted to ensure there was a forever mechanism for providing on-going support to meet the needs of our community.
This goal is accomplished through the distribution of grants which are funded through forever endowments and other funds. Endowment funds ensure an ongoing stream of funds to support and encourage the broader community good today and for generations to come.
