Gifts and Grants

Since 1923, Kosair Charities has helped children reach their potential while overcoming their obstacles. Our mission is to enhance the health and well-being of children by delivering financial support for healthcare, research, education, social services, and child advocacy. This is realized in part through our Gifts & Grants Program and event sponsorship.

We are proud to invest in and fund nonprofits working to solve the problems affecting children we serve in our community.

The Kosair Charities’ Board is now reviewing the 2020-2021 grant applications. Decisions and announcements will be made before the end of September 2020. 

Grant recipients and all partner organizations – please utilize the updated Kosair Charities logo on all print, electronic, and media materials. This includes, but is not limited to, letterheads, newsletters, solicitation letters, television commercials and websites. Contact for brand guidelines and logos.
