Kenai Peninsula Foundation Grant Program

Applications will be accepted from qualified, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organizations (or equivalents, such as Tribal entities, schools, and faith-based organizations) that support charitable organizations and programs in the central Kenai Peninsula area. Grants may support a broad range of community needs, including but not limited to: health and wellness, education, the great outdoors, arts and culture, and community development.

Grant projects must be completed within one year of award and are subject to the grantee completing an online grant agreement signifying acceptance of the terms and conditions of the grant. A final grant report must also be submitted online by the assigned due date, typically within one year.

  • Eligibility Criteria:
    • The Kenai Peninsula Foundation, an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation, seeks applications from qualified tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofits that support organizations and programs in the central Kenai Peninsula and serve the people’s needs in such areas as youth development, health, education, community heritage, the arts, vulnerable populations, recreation, safety, and community development.


  • Preference will be given to applications which have the potential to impact a broad range of central Kenai Peninsula area residents, provide an outline of measurable and achievable outcomes, and demonstrate other sources of support, collaboration, and/or cooperation.
  • Preference will also be given to projects and organizations which have not previously been supported by a KPF grant, projects which cannot be done to the level proposed without the grant, and projects which have the potential for adding value to the applicant organization's services.


  • Expenditures made prior to the grant award decision are not eligible for funding. 
  • Ineligible organizations or activities:
    • Individuals, for profit, and 501(c)(4) or (c)(6) organizations, non-Alaska based organizations and state or federal government agencies are not eligible for competitive grants.
    • Applications for religious indoctrination or other religious activities, endowment building, deficit financing, fundraising, lobbying, electioneering and activities of political nature will not be considered, nor will proposals for ads, sponsorships, or special event and any proposals which discriminate as to race, gender, marital status, sexual preference, age, disability, creed or ethnicity.
      • Exceptions: In selected cases, projects undertaken by organizations that normally fall outside the above guidelines may be able to receive funding.
        • Examples include: Religious organizations without religious purpose whose proposal impacts the broader community; or units of government whose proposal extends beyond the traditional governmental functions that impact the broader community.
