W.K. Kellogg Foundation


We are always looking to support new and innovative ideas and efforts that help ensure all children, families and communities – regardless of race or income – have opportunities to reach their full potential. WKKF wants all children to live a full life with high-quality early childhood experiences, in a home with families that have good jobs, and in a community where they are nurtured. Embedded in all that we do is a commitment to advancing racial equity, to developing leaders and to engaging communities in solving their own problems.


While not a definitive list, we typically do not fund unsolicited requests for the following:

  • Capital requests (e.g., the purchase or renovation of buildings, vehicles or technology)
  • Direct services (e.g., classroom supplies, library books, child care programs)
  • Continuation of established programs (e.g., shelters, food pantries, afterschool programs)
  • Endowments (e.g., establishing an investment fund or a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding)
  • Events (e.g., fundraisers, conferences, workshops)
  • Individual assistance (e.g., tuition, financial support, emergency aid)
