Gifts and Grants

The quality of a child’s tomorrow depends on the medical treatment and wellness support they receive today. If children are to thrive in our uncertain times and exercise thoughtful citizenship as adults, they must be equipped with the possibility for emotional, mental and physical well-being. When families are unable to provide funding for this well-being, Kosair Charities provides financial support to avoid suffering and neglect.

If you received a grant during the 2017-2018 grant cycle, a final report on how this grant money was used is due by January 31, 2019. Evaluation completion will be taken into consideration in future grant applications.

Grant recipients are required to use the Kosair Charities “Supported by” logo on all print and electronic materials, as well as in media used by their agency. This includes, but is not limited to, letterheads, newsletters, solicitation letters, television commercials and websites.
