PROJECT SUPPORT SMALL GRANTS (up to $10,000)
Requests for individual projects, programs and capital projects will be considered in this category. Requests for General Operating Support must be submitted in the General Operating Support Category.
Organizations are required to submit their Project Support request online. Please contact us at (405)767-3702 to request the online application link.
Project Support Small Grants ($10,000 or less) have no set deadline. Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis and held for consideration at a scheduled quarterly Grants Committee meeting. Grant requests in this category received in the same month of the trustee meeting may not be considered until the subsequent quarterly meeting, however, every effort will be made to process grant applications that are received after the cut-off date in a timely fashion. This will be based on the staff’s ability to process the application within the time frame of the various meeting schedules.
All organizations interested in submitting a grant request are strongly encouraged to contact the Kirkpatrick Family Fund two to three months prior to the application deadline. This allows time to discuss the organization’s goals, provide guidance and any needed technical assistance in developing the grant.
HOW TO APPLY

Applicants with a current and complete GiveSmartOKC profile may be eligible to submit an amended grant application. The application attachments for eligible organizations include only the project narrative and project budget, rather than the full series of project information, financial statements, and support material. For more information, please visit our FAQ page.
The Kirkpatrick Family Fund requires that evaluations of previous grants be completed in order for future applications to be considered, unless an exception is approved by the staff at Kirkpatrick Family Fund.
- Organizations receiving a Project Support Grant for a specific project should submit a final evaluation within 30 days of completing the project.
- Organizations receiving a grant for a project that extends beyond a 12-month period should provide an interim report at 12 months with an updated timeline for the completion of the project.
