Our Community Impact

As a Community Foundation, we see it as our job to be actively involved in our community. We don't just help others invest in our community, we also work as an active force to make Kitsap a more resilient, healthy, strong community. From helping nonprofits to creating Kitsap Strong, our poverty alleviation project, we are always working to find ways we can uplift and strengthen Kitsap.

Growing a Giving Culture

The Kitsap Great Give is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Kitsap Community Foundation to benefit the greater Kitsap area, including North Mason County. Through this event, anyone anywhere can give as much as they want to support Kitsap nonprofits, and we'll boost their donation from our sponsor-created bonus pool.
