Kalamazoo Community Foundation

The Kalamazoo Community Foundation was established in 1925 with a $1,000 gift from one person with a vision of a better community--W.E. Upjohn. Today it is one of the oldest, most respected, and successful community foundations in the country, and it is supported by thousands of people from all walks of life. 

The Community Foundation provides essential funding to programs that ensure all of our children have an equitable chance for success in school; that nurture and prepare all of our young people for life beyond school; that support individuals and families from all walks of life; that enhance community prosperity in every corner of Kalamazoo County, and; that make life better for all.

The KCF has an in-depth understanding of the community’s challenges and needs, as well as the groups and individuals addressing them. It is dedicated to preserving what we have come to appreciate most in our community for future generations.

The Kalamazoo Community Foundation is here to do good work, forever.
