2020 CBK Small Grant Program Application (from the Kenosha Community Foundation)
The Kenosha Community Foundation is now accepting applications for 2020 awards from the CBK Grant program. Please complete the form below to apply for a grant.

The purpose of the CBK Grant program is to provide funds:

"to groups offering programs in the arts or the understanding of our natural world. It will emphasize cross-cultural and multi-generational programs in both areas, whenever possible"

Funds for the CBK Grant program are derived from income from two endowment funds at the Foundation - the Clark-Barber Family Fund and the Kubasiewicz Family Trust.

CBK not only means Creativity By Kids (of any age) but it is also derived from first initials of the names of the Clark, Barber, and Kubasiewicz families – the donors that established the grant program.

Based on purpose detailed above by the donors, the Foundation welcomes requests for funding for projects/initiatives in one or more of the following areas:

¬ the arts
¬ culture
¬ nature
¬ the environment

For the 2020 CBK grant program:

• A not-for-profit organization, government agency and/or educational institution can apply,
• The Foundation plans to award grants totaling $2,000.
• The award can be used as a contribution to an existing project/initiative OR to help start a new program/initiative.
• All submissions must be made using this on-line Google Form.

The deadline for applications is January 15, 2020.

If the Foundation is interested in supporting the proposal, the organization(s) will be contacted by the Foundation and will have two weeks to answer any follow-up questions and may be asked to provide some or all of the following information:

1. A list of the organization’s officers and directors.
2. A letter stating that the organization’s governing body (if a not-for-profit organization) or executive office (if an educational institution or government agency) has formally authorized the grant application.
3. The organization's IRS federal tax exemption determination letter (required for not-for-profit
1. organizations and educational institutions).
4. Your organization's employment non-discrimination policy.
5. Your organization's most recent IRS Form 990 (required for not-for-profit organizations).

NOTE: As this is a new and very much an experimental program, the expectations will be documenting the 2020 grant-making process and feedback from applicants. With the feedback received, we plan to further refine the CBK Grant Program for 2021.
