The Katie Gruenheck Fund

Celebrating 12 Years of Impact! 

What began in 2011 as a way to honor one selfless individual, The Katie Gruenheck Fund has now supported more than 2,200 KIPP DC graduates to help them assess and pursue college and career options. The KIPP Forward program supports students through advising, scholarships for college persistence and career training, and alumni networking.

This year, the Katie Gruenheck Fund will support financial aid for KIPP DC alumni. With the rising cost of college and career programs, the need has never been greater. Microgrants awarded to KIPP DC alumni cover the costs of academic materials, technology, transportation, and gaps in tuition that help them persist through their post-high school journey.

This work is 100% philanthropically funded and we could not do it without you.

Thank you for celebrating 12 years with us and for your continued generous support!

If you prefer to donate via check, please make payable to KIPP DC with Katie Gruenheck Fund denoted in the memo section and mail to: KIPP DC, 2600 Virginia Avenue NW, Suite 900, Washington, DC 20037
