KCF's staff provides in-depth, substantive research and first-hand experience of non-profits and communities throughout Kitsap County. We also bring tremendous efficiencies to charitable giving and decision-making. We identify philanthropic vehicles and approaches that result in maximum tax advantages for KCF's donors while also helping your clients fulfill their charitable wishes and planning goals.


The minimum dollar amount to establish a permanent fund is $5,000, although the fund must reach $10,000 in donated assets within three years. Non-permanent funds (which we call "pass-through funds") do not have a minimum.
