The Kitsap Great Give?

What is the Kitsap Great Give? The Kitsap Great Give is an annual day of giving during which anyone, anywhere can go to www.kitsapgreatgive. org and donate as much as they want to as many registered nonprofits as they want in a single transaction. All the nonprofits registered are 501(c)(3) charities based in or serving Kitsap or Mason counties and it is totally free for the nonprofits to participate. In 2018, we embark upon the fifth annual Kitsap Great Give! Each year has been a record-breaker and last year, nearly 4,000 donors raised $1.63 million dollars for nonprofits based in or serving Kitsap and/or North Mason Counties. Those dollars changed lives of our community members and since last year, nonprofits participating in the Kitsap Great Give have touched the lives of community members in a positive way over 1 million times. You are the key to investing in our community and giving this amazing gift to our local nonprofits! You and the thousands of other residents on the Kitsap Peninsula can go to www. kitsapgreatgive.org on April 24, and change lives in your community. The minimum donation is $10, and when thousands of people give $10, it adds up to some pretty big numbers.

This publication is produced by:

Why should I bother to donate online on April 24? There are over 300,000 reasons to take part on April 24. Those 300,000+ reasons are the residents of Kitsap and North Mason County! The nonprofits in our counties touch the lives of every resident in one way or another. Even if you don’t know they exist, or don’t use them, those organizations are working to make life better for all our residents in ways you might not expect. Many people don’t realize just how many nonprofits there are in Kitsap and North Mason, or the impact that they make in our community. This year we have 314 nonprofits participating. Those organizations are all charitable organizations – they don’t make a profit – they exist to serve others. They feed the hungry, house the homeless, help victims of sexual assault, help children learn music and sports, help animals find homes, provide school supplies for kids, honor veterans, preserve public lands, support parks, teach kids leadership, and much more! This is your chance to join in, change the lives of your fellow community members, and share your resources with the causes that matter most to you. You can research those nonprofits at www. kitsapgreatgive.org.

One of the most exciting reasons to give on April 24, is that, unlike any other day of the year, if you donate to nonprofits via the Kitsap Great Give, our sponsors will add money to your donation! This year, our sponsors have provided $180,000 for us to give to nonprofits on top of your donation! For instance, if you donate $100 to a nonprofit through www.kitsapgreatgive.org that day, the nonprofit may actually receive $110 or more dollars. All participating nonprofits that receive a donation on April 24 will get part of the Bonus Bucks.

The Kitsap Community Foundation By: Kol Medina, CEO The Kitsap Community Foundation, in partnership with our Presenting Partner, the United Way of Kitsap County, is pleased to produce the Kitsap Great Give. We don’t make any money off of hosting it, it’s just one of the things the Foundation does to meet our mission – connecting people who care with causes that matter.

Helping Our Community With The Kitsap Great Give Kitsap and North Mason are an extremely generous community! With 314 participating nonprofits, the Kitsap Great Give provides a chance to showcase just how generous this community is. Last year, we raised $1.63 million for Kitsap, and changed lives in our community. We can’t wait to see what our community will do this year! If you are new to the Kitsap Great Give, then go to page XXX and read all about it.

Grants & Scholarships Kitsap Community Foundation is YOUR community foundation. Our purpose is to improve our community by working to improve the nonprofits in our community, working to increase philanthropy in our community, and providing leadership in our nonprofit sector. We started making grants to nonprofits in 1999. Since that time, the Foundation has distributed more than $6.5M in grants, contributions, and scholarships.

KCNE In 2015, Kitsap Community Foundation, Olympic College Foundation, and United Way of Kitsap County co-sponsored the Kitsap Center for Nonprofit Excellence (“KCNE”). KCNE was founded to provide deeper, regular, and more integrated continuing education to our county’s nonprofit community. Our hope is for KCNE to grow

into a multi-faceted provider of trainings, networking opportunities, and leadership development for Kitsap County nonprofits. You can find out more at www.kcnestrong.org.

Kitsap Strong We also helped found Kitsap Strong, a collaboration started by Kitsap Community Foundation, The Suquamish Tribe, United Way of Kitsap County, and the Kitsap Public Health District. This is a long-term collective impact initiative focused on preventing and mitigating the impacts of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences), thereby alleviating inter-generational poverty throughout our community. Kitsap Strong will create longterm beneficial change in our community. You can find out more at www.kitsapstrong.org.

Growing Your Endowment How do we make all of this happen? Mainly it happens through an endowment of money – think of it like a rich kid’s trust fund, except that it is for you – for the entire county. This is our central program, in which we work to grow an endowment of money that will provide grants to and programs for the nonprofits in our community FOREVER.

Your endowment is now at about $12 million and growing! There are many ways you can contribute to the community endowment. • You can donate through the Kitsap Great Give (choose Community Endowment Fund). • You can become a Legacy Leader by naming the Foundation in your will. • You can open a scholarship, or start your own fund. We have a number of different types of funds to help you give back to your community in a way that works best for you. Explore how we can help you invest in your community forever on our website, www.kitsapfoundation. org or by contacting Kol Medina, President and CEO at kol@kitsapfoundation.org or 360698-3622. Let us partner with you in your personal philanthropy!

We have always been about the difference we can make in our community & how best to help those in need. Our mission is to mobilize community resources to improve people’s lives through leveraged investments, collaborative partnerships and capacity building initiatives. One way we work to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another is by hosting www. volunteerkitsap.org. VolunteerKitsap is our virtual volunteer center. We recruit potential volunteers to register so they can connect with opportunities. We work with organizations to build their volunteer needs & events so volunteers can connect with them. This is our event management tool for our annual Day of Caring. We encourage youth to use this as a way to connect to opportunities for work experience, and earning their service hours for graduation as well as scholarship opportunities. As your local United Way, we work to be a community builder, connecting people to the larger community through philanthropy and volunteerism. By being connected – Living United – we will win the fight for the health, education, and financial stability of all in Kitsap County. Your investments make the difference. Thank you for making United Way of Kitsap County one of your Great Give designees.

How Communities Prosper By Ani Gatz As a child, I lived in Texas for several years, near my grandmother, whom I called “Memaw”. Her family came to the Southwest by way of Appalachia, and Memaws are of the utmost importance in that culture. It was no different for me, and my memories of summers spent with Memaw remain vivid. During a West Texas summer, shade is a precious commodity, and one of my favorite activities when the afternoon sun scorched the back of the house was roller-skating down the concrete ramp on Memaw’s shady front porch. The ramp was for my uncles, both of whom had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and were therefore wheelchairbound. I don’t remember my uncle Danny, but uncle Billy was one of my favorite people in the world. One summer afternoon, he rolled out onto the porch and played his harmonica while one of my sisters and I roller-skated down the ramp, giggling as we tumbled into the prickly brown front lawn. “I remember when we got this thing and Mama cried.” He said. “Why would she cry over a ramp?” I asked. “Because it was so expensive. But the MDA helped us get it, or maybe it was people from the church, I can’t remember. It made her happy that people helped us.” “Who?” I wondered. “The Muscular Dystrophy Association.” “Who are they?” “Just people in the community. I mean, they are a group, but local people belong to it here and they help each other out.

Just nice to have a helping hand.” He went back to playing his harmonica. I still didn’t understand why Memaw cried. I was very young and had no real concept of finances, death, or disease – Uncle Billy’s dead body was the first I ever touched (back then, the life expectancy for Duchenne sufferers did not go past the 20’s).

“Why do you do this?” She wanted to know. At the time, I did not have the words to articulate the impact nonprofits had had on my life, how they are such a precious, needed, wonderful part of communities. I couldn’t explain how those nonprofits are really just people – people who help other people because they care. They are the communities we live in helping themselves. They are

Please donate to Kitsap Community Foundation on April 24 to help the Foundation pay for the costs of producing the Kitsap Great Give!

Not until many years later did I begin to understand how much someone with Duchenne needed. Oxygen tanks, hospital beds, wheelchairs, lower counters, feeding equipment, a van with a wheel-chair lift, concrete ramps granddaughters can rollerskate down – the list is long. Then there is the necessary family support– mental, emotional, and most certainly financial.

My grandparents were not rich. The cost of helping their sons live and die was overwhelming, and having Uncle Danny spend his last days in an assisted living facility broke Memaw’s heart. She once told me it was Danny’s dying wish that Billy be able to live out his life at home. None of that would have been possible without the MDA, churches, and other local nonprofits that eased the pain and burden my family felt. As I grew into a young woman, Memaw taught me that giving to a community was every person’s undeniable human responsibility and nonprofits like the MDA were a regular part of life. In my early twenties, I had no money to give, but as Memaw had taught me, I volunteered for local

All prizes are subject to verification following the event. By participating in the Event, participants agree to be bound by the decisions of Foundation personnel. Persons who violate any rule, gain unfair advantage in participating in the Event, or obtain winner status using fraudulent means will be disqualified.

As wild spaces move further from the everyday awareness of mainstream society, our culture is losing its understanding and relationship with nature.

Our goal is to create and support social tools that build these values through a deep understanding of the natural world.

Our Mission

Wild Society is a wilderness education nonprofit based in western WA that provides weeklong backcountry hikes, workshops, and community events centered upon a love for the natural world. We work to establish relationships between human hearts and the everyday wild.It is increasingly common today for people – especially children – to spend most of their life indoors.

Our programs use adventure, inquiry, and natural history to awaken a sense of awe and wonder. We strive to teach people about the living world with the aim of offering not only knowledge, but the seeds and tools to grow powerful and lifelong relationships with nature. We want everyone to be able to enjoy and learn from the mountains. That is why we are doing everything we can to make our programs accessible to all people.

Pacific Islanders are often overlooked in educational research. Among students of color, they have the highest dropout and suspension/expulsion rates along with the lowest academic achievements in Washington Schools. They are underrepresented and underserved by our Washington educational system. Our students deserve educational equity and need our help to realize their potential. Fetu Ta'iala Learning Center (FTLC), or Fetu Ta'iala (for short) is a grassroots nonprofit organization committed to education equity and to close the academic and opportunity gaps for disadvantaged and underserved students with a focus on Pacific Islander students in Washington schools.

Two years ago, Josh was homeless. Today, he’s on track to graduate from the Olympic College welding program and pursue a career in a field he loves. He couldn’t have done it without support from community donors, who fund scholarships and emergency assistance for students in need. For Josh and hundreds of other students each quarter who need a helping hand, your gift on April 24 during the Kitsap Great Give can truly transform a life.
