Each year, KJWC solicits recipients for our major fundraising project.  In June, the charitable candidates are put to a vote and a community recipient is chosen.  Secondary candidates may also receive funds based on our annual earnings budget.

We look for local organizations that contribute to the welfare of the community, be it not for profit social programs, history or preservation or specific community projects.  All organizations are asked to complete a funding request application, which enables us to decide who we wish to support with our monetary gifts. If you are interested in an application for next year's charity, please complete this charitable application or contact our Charitable Chairwoman at
