The Kitsap Community Foundation (KCF) connects private giving to public good in every corner of the county. There is no more direct or efficient method of beginning that connection than through our giving processes. You may also designate your tax-deductible gift in honor or in memory of a friend, family member, or colleague.
You may also donate online with the KCF's secure donation system via "PayPal." Please note the name of the fund (if you have a preference) in the fund section of the form. A list and brief description of the various funds available for contribution are listed below.
There is a $25 minimum donation requirement for online gifts.

Community Foundation acknowledging your gift and confirming its purpose.
