Submit a Letter of Inquiry
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 will only accept Letters of Inquiry from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that have become GuideStar Exchange Program Members at the Silver, Gold, or Platinum level, a free service provided by GuideStar www.guidestar.org. The purposes of this requirement are to increase the transparency of nonprofit organizations in our service area and to reduce paperwork associated with grant applications.
When applying to the Foundation for support, please make certain that your request addresses one or more of our program goals. We have listed program proposals of interest to the Foundation (outlined after each stated goal); however, applications that extend beyond those proposals of interest are also encouraged. Once you have determined that there is a match between your request and the Foundation's mission, focus, and program goals, you may submit a Letter of Inquiry of a maximum of four pages in length. Because of the large number of requests the Foundation receives and the time required to develop a complete grant proposal, applicants are not to send full proposals unless they have been requested to do so by a Foundation staff member in response to a Letter of Inquiry.
The Foundation's next Distribution Committee meeting is scheduled for March 25, 2020.
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.
