The Patricia Kind Family Foundation accepts applications, supporting documentation, and grant reports online. In 2019, we changed our focus to funding organizations providing services only in Philadelphia County (this does not include Trustee Grants). Most giving is in the range of $10,000 to $25,000/year for a one to three year period and priority is given to smaller organizations with budgets under $1 million. Please note - we are strongly focusing on organizations with budgets of $1 million or less. If you have a large budget and are unsure if you should apply, please reach out prior to submitting an application.

We encourage organizations to apply for multi-year general operating support funds.


The online application will close at 5:00pm on the deadline date.

Site visits are done on all programs selected for possible funding and, if possible, the Trustees want to see the program “in action”. Please keep this in mind when selecting which application cycle to use and note the months during each cycle that site visits are scheduled. Alternate site visit arrangements can be made for organizations running programs during the summer months.

All applicants are contacted during the review process. After the application cycle closes and the application has been fully reviewed you will be contacted as to the status, either to schedule a site visit for further evaluation or notification that the proposal was not selected for funding. This process will take six to seven weeks after the deadline.

Excluded from the Foundation’s funding priorities are grants in direct support of individuals, i.e., scholarships or fellowships; endowments; and capital projects.

Grantees must take an application cycle off after submitting their final report before being eligible to submit a new request.

Applicants who have been denied funding must take an application cycle off before being eligible to submit a new request.
