The Patricia Kind Family Foundation only accepts applications, supporting documentation, and grant reports online. Most giving is in the range of $10,000 to $25,000/year for a one to three year period and priority will be given to smaller organizations with budgets under $1 million. We encourage organizations to apply for multi-year general operating support funds.

Please Note: WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FROM NEW ORGANIZATIONS FOR THE GRANT CYCLE THAT OPENED ON AUGUST 1, 2020. Because of the unprecedented Coronavirus impacting our area, the Foundation will only be accepting applications from Philadelphia grantees that we have previously funded. We are also waiving the year off requirement for grantees that recently completed a grant. 

Although we have funded programs in the four counties surrounding Philadelphia in the past – Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery – we are now focusing our support specifically to organizations in Philadelphia County. The Summer/Fall 2019 application cycle was the last cycle that programs operating in these four counties were eligible to apply for possible funding. Beginning in 2020, we will only accept applications from organizations providing services in Philadelphia County (this does not include Trustee Grants).

The online application will close at midnight on the deadline date.

Site visits are done on all programs selected for possible funding and 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 three to five 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 wait one year after completion of a grant before being eligible to submit a new request.

Applicants who are denied funding are asked to wait at least one year before reapplying.
