Kern Community Foundation and our generous supporters and fundholders are committed to improving life in Kern County through effective philanthropy. Since 1999, collectively we have granted more than $18 million to meet the needs of our community. We believe in connecting donors to the causes they care about and serving as community leaders to effect change – in other words, providing opportunities that have real impact.
