Application Procedures

The Foundation has amended its application process as of January 1st, 2022. The Foundation now accepts applications on a rolling basis. The Board meets three times a year to consider proposals for support. The Foundation funds specific programs and projects and general operating support. It does not support capital or endowment campaigns.

If you are a first-time applicant, please submit a short LOI to office@kornfeldfdn.org. The Foundation may also request a meeting to get to know your organization. You will then be contacted if the Foundation wishes to invite a full proposal.

For all requests please include:

1. Proposal:

  • For general operating support, you may submit a proposal that you have used for any similar request, but it must include a summary of your organization (mission, history, structure, stakeholders/audience/participants, & general finances).
  • For project/program support, please include a summary of your organization (mission, history, structure, stakeholders/audience/participants, & general finances) and a description of the project with your goals and objectives, target audience/participants, a timeline, and evaluation/impact plans.

2. Budget and Financial:

  • For general operating support, an organizational budget for the prior and current year and projections for any year where support is requested.
  • For project/program support, an organizational budget for the prior and current year and projections for any year where support is requested, and an income and expense budget for the requested project/program.
  • Most recent audited financial report for the organization

All applications and all correspondence should be submitted electronically to
Katy Clark, Executive Director, at office@kornfeldfdn.org.


The Foundation welcomes feedback on its process at any time.
