Give Kearney Now, powered by the Kearney Area Community Foundation (KACF), is a grassroots effort to support local nonprofits affected by COVID-19. The goal is to help raise funds for local nonprofits who are working on the front lines during this COVID-19 pandemic, as well as those affected due to loss of revenue or an increase in expenses.

Donors can support local nonprofits by donating directly to their favorite charities online. Here, donors can view the 42 local nonprofits participating in Give Kearney Now. Each participating nonprofit is listed with a link to their organization’s website and donation page.

KACF would like to encourage donors to support our local nonprofits who are committed to act with fierce urgency to support the people and communities hit hardest by the impact of COVID-19.
