Kensington Community Resilience Fund


Core to the KCR Fund’s approach is a participatory grantmaking process that elevates resident and community provider experiences and priorities, placing the power to make funding decisions in their hands.


The Kensington Community Resilience Fund (KCR Fund) is a public-private-community partnership between community members, the City of Philadelphia, and regional funders to explicitly address the community impacts of the opioid crisis in Kensington. KCR Fund grants will provide flexible, general operating support in the amount of $10,000 per grant. This level is intended to give grantees of all sizes the ability to think creatively about their work and to work sustainably over the one-year grant period, including being able to provide fair compensation to those carrying out the work. The KCR Fund will work to advance the following goals:

  • To promote wellness, build resilience, and improve the quality of life in the greater Kensington community
  • To increase agency and support equity and racial/social justice by having community partners and residents direct funding decisions
  • To build cohesion and connectivity among community providers, residents, and city agencies to support collaboration, information sharing, and alignment of services
  • To expand capacity of participants – both organizations and individuals to pursue sustainable, quality-of life focused programming to support the community
  • To serve as a catalyst and build the infrastructure to support long-term, sustained investment, and partnership with funders in the Kensington community

Organizations who wish to apply can find additional information about the fund at There will be a virtual information session on Thursday, May 6, 2021 and applications are due Wednesday, May 26th, 2021. The first group of KCRF grantees is expected to be announced in July 2021, with a second round of funding anticipated in fall 2021.
