CKF operates as a grant making as well as an operating foundation. As an operating foundation staff will direct major programs and conduct some work in-house. As a grant making foundation we will provide financial resources for other carefully selected civic organizations to implement program activities in line with our goals.
We leverage the expertise and network of our patron and board members to build strong partnerships that maximize our resources and optimize our reach and impact. The foundation accomplishes its goals through Direct Service, Grants, Fellowships/ Scholarships, Research, and Endowments.
CKF’s programs and initiatives give priority consideration to economically disadvantaged, physically challenged, and the programs that service them.
