Please submit your request applications with this schedule in mind.

The Kimball Foundation is a broad based organization, that is, it gives to a wide variety of causes that run from homeless shelters to environmental concerns, from health centers to volunteer fire and ambulance corps. The Foundation likes to match gifts from other foundations and businesses for a particular project, as well as, help start up projects and small organizations that are struggling - who without help might not be able to continue. The Foundation encourages charitable organizations, with a similar goal or purpose, to work together toward that end.
