About this funder:



The Kuntz Foundation Fund

The Kuntz Foundation was established in 1946 as a private corporate foundation of The Peter Kuntz Company and its retail lumber yards. The original Trustees were the sons of the company's founder Peter Kuntz, Sr. and were active in management of the company. Between 1946 and 1986, the Foundation served primarily to meet charitable and civic requests made to the PK lumber yards. In addition, it contributed to other groups in the greater Dayton area and beyond with whom the Trustees had established personal ties. These contributions continued the wonderful record of philanthropy established by Peter Kuntz, Sr. during his lifetime.

Since its inception, the Kuntz Foundation has contributed over six million dollars to organizations in the fields of Education, Religion, Health Care, Civic and Cultural Affairs, and Human Services. We will consider applications for capital projects. Unless we so stipulate, all grants are for one time. Grants for individuals will not be considered. All applying organizations must be IRS approved, non-profit groups. 

The Board will generally consider:

  • Project funding (vs. operating funding)
  • Local focus (Greater Miami Valley)
  • Prefer 1 year funding
  • Faith-based (Catholic emphasis)

With no preference to:

  • Prevention / Intervention
  • Prevention / Acute care
  • Target populations

  • To be eligible to receive a grant from the Kuntz Family Foundation, an organization must have 501 (c) 3 status with the IRS.
