2021 CBK Small Grant Program Application (from the Kenosha Community Foundation)
The Kenosha Community Foundation is now accepting applications for 2021 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 the first initials of the names of the Clark, Barber, and Kubasiewicz families – the donors that established the grant program.

Based on the 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 2021 CBK grant program:

• A not-for-profit organization, government agency, and/or educational institution can apply,
• 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.
• On questions that request a narrative response, please limit it to 1,000 characters (about 150 words) or less.
• The final question on the form requests feedback on the CBK application process - we will use your input to further refine the CBK Grant Program for 2022.

The Foundation plans to award grants totaling $3,000 - more could be awarded if additional donor contributions are received.

The deadline for applications is Friday, January 15, 2021.
