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.

The 2019-2020 Grant Application is now closed,  you can expect to hear something from us before the end of July.

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 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.
