Fellow Gifts

As the culmination of two years together, Kuehn Fellows have an unusual opportunity to make an impact collectively, directing a gift from the Foundation to a nonprofit they select.

2015 Fellows

The 2015 Fellows prioritized the issue area of financial readiness and asset-building for low-income households.  After a several-month process collaborating to identify and screen potential grantees, the Fellows chose Family Independence Initiative. FII asks “Why make poverty tolerable, when we can make it escapable?” and seeks to change the resource gap for low-income families by partnering with, learning from, and investing directly in families. www.fii.org

KCF was pleased to make a donation of $20,000 at the direction of the 2015 Fellows to FII.
