Grants of up to $5,000 to Wisconsin nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies for arts and educational activities. Priority will be given to initiatives in Sheboygan County, with secondary priority given to small towns throughout the state.

The Foundation’s main interest is in arts and education programs in the Sheboygan County region, run by organizations both known and new to KFI which have ethical and sound management practices and plans for sustainability of the programs beyond KFI’s support.

From time to time the Foundation also supports arts and education programs in other small communities around the state of Wisconsin, particularly those which have already been the recipients of KFI investment through its other program areas (e.g., art preservation), and very small towns or rural areas where there is little other philanthropic capital available.

Within the fields of arts and education, a few particular types of programs are of special interest KFI’s grant committee, including: STEAM initiatives (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics); Increasing access to the arts (e.g. transportation, visiting artists/distance learning, rural outreach, technology); Programs which have a specific plan to create an impact of greater proportion than a small grant might initially reflect.

Requests for technology and equipment may receive funding occasionally, but not on an ongoing basis.
