Thank you for your interest in funding opportunities from The Kresge Foundation. We invest in cities through eight programs and practices, which have established specific objectives to advance strategic goals. These objectives are called focus areas. It is through focus areas that grant opportunities are made available to grantseekers. You can learn more about each focus area in the Our Work section under each program.
We use an array of flexible grantmaking and social investing tools. Kresge awards single and multiyear grants for general operating support, projects and planning. We also use impact investing tools such as program-related investments, guarantees and equity.
How to Apply
The Kresge Foundation uses the Fluxx platform to manage the grantmaking process. First-time Fluxx visitors will need to create an account and use the Google Chrome browser.
