Memorial
  Donate Richard Ostrander Foundation for Youth Sports

Disaster Relief
  Donate Kitsap Racial Equity & Empowerment Fund (KREEF)
A diverse representation of community leaders have come together as a Steering Committee in partnership with Kitsap Community Foundation and United Way of Kitsap County to launch a new focus area of the Unity in the Community Kitsap COVID-19 Response Fund called the Kitsap Racial Equity and Empowerment Fund. There is an ongoing need to address systemic inequities, which disproportionately impact Black and other marginalized communities. Meanwhile, there is an urgent need to address how these inequities are amplified by COVID-19, with increased disproportionate adverse impacts on the Black community. We are in a cycle where awareness of systemic racism and anti-Blackness is increasingly being acknowledged; now is the time for a focus on racial equity.
  Donate Kitsap Small Business Response Fund
Help Chambers Help Small Businesses

All six Kitsap Chambers of Commerce have been working together since the shutdown to support ALL local businesses, not just their members. During this unprecedented blow to our local economy, our chambers have been providing the information and tools that our local businesses need to access emergency funding, to reopen safely and continue to operate safely in the weeks and months to come.

However, as 501c6 non-profits, chambers have not been included in access to most of that same federal and state emergency funding. Their operating income is derived from membership dues and fundraising events, both of which have been hugely impacted by COVID-19. They have continued their very important work for and on behalf of local businesses in their respective communities, but fear what a decline in membership and cancellation of events will mean for their ability to continue to provide support to distressed businesses.

The Kitsap Small Business Response Fund is a joint effort of Kitsap Community Foundation and all Kitsap Chambers of Commerce, including Port Orchard, Bremerton, Silverdale, Poulsbo, Kingston, and Bainbridge Island.

The Kitsap Small Business Response Fund will allow chambers to keep providing education and other support related to COVID-19 to all local businesses, including current guidelines for specific industries, PPE resources, and procurement, and participation signage to promote their own efforts. By donating to the Kitsap Small Business Response Fund, you will help us make sure our local businesses have the information and tools they need to recover and thrive. Help us help our local businesses by supporting the Kitsap Small Business Response Fund.

  Donate Unity in the Community Kitsap's COVID-19 Response Fund

  Donate West Sound Cycling Club Pump Track Project
Build a Pump Track in Bremerton Visit any pump track and the first thing you’ll notice is that they are a magnet for kids of all ages. Two year-olds on their balance bikes run up the “hills” of the track and coast happily down the other side. 10 year-olds are racing around the track without peddling and catching air on the jump line.

It can be very busy - van loads of kids will arrive during off-school hours. A pump track is an amazing skills development playground for any budding cyclist!
