How To Apply
Below, you’ll find helpful information on how to get started, what kinds of projects we support and those we typically do not fund.
How to get started:
- What problem are you trying to solve with this idea?
- What are the objectives or outcomes you aim to achieve?
- What interventions or strategies are you considering?
- Who are your partners?
- How does your project take into consideration our commitments to racial equity and racial healing, community engagement and/or leadership development, or what WKKF refers to as our DNA?
What types of projects does WKKF support?
- Capital requests (e.g., the purchase or renovation of buildings, vehicles or technology)
- Endowments (e.g., establishing an investment fund or a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding)
- Events (e.g., fundraisers, conferences, workshops) that are not part of a larger WKKF-funded project, or fit with WKKF’s priorities
- Individual assistance (e.g., tuition, financial support, emergency aid, etc.)
Where does WKKF fund?

What should I expect?
As described above, the LOI offers the opportunity to provide us key details about your idea or project for funding consideration. After you submit a letter of inquiry, you will receive a response within 30 business days, informing you of next steps. At that time, we may encourage you to develop and submit a more formal proposal.
As you might imagine, we receive more requests each year than we are able to fund. Unfortunately, this means we are unable to provide funding for a majority of the letters of inquiry we receive.
