Supporting the Ketchikan Community Foundation makes our area stronger. Our three funds help us to support the community and work towards self-sustainability to ensure KCF remains a grant-making entity for years to come.
Ketchikan Community Foundation Fund
This is our flagship endowment fund. The earnings from this endowment are used to award grants to local 501(c)(3) nonprofits. This flexible endowment meets the current needs of our community as they arise. Grants address issues like education, economic development, art, culture & social services. As this endowment grows, so does our ability to invest in Ketchikan’s future.
Ketchikan Community Foundation Operating Endowment Fund
This fund will allow KCF to become self-sustaining. The interest earned from this fund goes to support operating costs, such as community events, administration, and outreach. This fund is also used to train local nonprofit boards and leaders, or to supplement grants. The Operating Endowment Fund is essential to achieving our mission and supporting our community.
Ketchikan Community Foundation Operating Fund
Funded by the Operating Endowment and donations, this fund supports short-term operational costs.
