SUBJECT: Kronkosky Charitable Foundation Response to COVID-19
Today, March 19, 2020 at 5 pm we will close our offices for an indeterminate period of time.
The staff will work remotely. The current grant cycles will remain the same and in person submission meetings are cancelled until further notice. As always, our Grant Managers are accessible via phone or email.
We will continue to adapt as the situation unfolds and will post updates to our website and via our LinkedIn page (https://www.linkedin.com/company/kronkosky-charitable-foundation).
The Kronkosky Charitable Foundation has supported Bandera, Bexar, Comal and Kendall counties for 25 years and will continue to do so safely and with intentional sensitivity to the current situation.
Effective April 15, 2019, the Kronkosky Charitable Foundation will only accept Letters of Inquiry Submitted Online. Hard copy letters will be returned to sender.
The Foundation is now accepting Letters of Inquiry submitted through our online portal. Once an applicant has created an account, all of the information required can be entered into the online form. The applicant will receive a confirmation email and a copy of the contents of the submitted Letter of Inquiry. The system allows for applicants to begin a letter, stop at any time during the process, and pick up were they left off at a later time (within 120 days) without losing any previously entered information. Once a letter has been submitted, no further action on the part of the applicant is required. Visit our Grants section for more information and a direct link to the portal.
The Foundation's next Distribution Committee meeting is scheduled for March 9, 2021.
With the exception of special initiatives, the Foundation does not have deadlines governing the submission of Letters of Inquiry or grant proposals. Letters of Inquiry and grant proposals will be accepted throughout the year and reviewed on a rolling basis. When a grant proposal is ready for review by the Distribution Committee, it will be included on the agenda of the next meeting at which discussion time is available. Generally speaking, planning for a Distribution Committee agenda will be completed approximately one month before the meeting date.
On December 1, 2020 the Foundation’s Distribution Committee approved $4,872,000 of grants to 29 organizations.
The details on these and other grants by the Foundation may be found in the Awarded Grants section of this website.
