Kenneth King Foundation staff have pre-application discussions to identify whether programs/organizations are a fit with their funding priority. This is a helpful step because it saves applicant and reviewers time, so I encourage you to reach out to them to schedule a time to talk because they accept proposals by-invitation only.

The grant application is similar to the Colorado Common Grant. There is enough character space for reasonable responses. There is not a focus on DEI, which is a bonus. The staff are very nice and you should probably give them a call before you apply.

Pros

Friendly, "Gets" nonprofits and issues
