Investing in our community
Kern Community Foundation's grantmaking programs are designed to provide general support, primarily through grants from donor advised funds, and targeted support through competitive grants. We seek to generate real return from our charitable investments by awarding grants that build the capacity of local nonprofit organizations to improve their operational effectiveness and move toward greater sustainability.
Connecting people who care to causes that matter
The Foundation helps individuals, families and businesses give gifts that enhance the quality of life for all people in Kern County.
