COVID-19 Update


As we step into life in the time of COVID-19, HRK Foundation is committed to maintaining strong relationships with and responding to the needs of our ongoing partners, as well as the community as a whole. The health and safety of all is our highest priority.

We have streamlined our renewal process and will be working to expedite grants to ongoing community partners. We have signed the Council on Foundation’s Philanthropy Commitment calling on all funders to respond with flexible funds and a sense of fierce urgency. In addition, we have made grants to Second Harvest Heartland’s Emergency Fund and the Headwaters Foundation Communities First Fund — both Funds are providing immediate support to those in greatest need.

HRK Staff are working remotely at this time. If you have questions or concerns, please email with your message or to schedule a phone call.
