Investing in the future through education

Since 2009, KEF has been quietly supporting the dreams of K-12 teachers and classrooms with small grants ranging from $500-2,000. But we don’t want to be quiet or small anymore! Our community needs and requires excellent public schools. Diversity in funding is one way we can get there. We have set our biggest fundraising goal yet for 2019.

Rise 2019

This year we have a specific challenge to more than double the funding of our grant program to $70,000 by December 31. These dollars will go directly to grants that will enrich Kalispell Public Schools immediately.
