together we can do so much.”

– Helen Keller

Support The Kenney with your gift today!




The Kenney Foundation

Individuals and businesses support this historic community each day.  Won’t you join them?

Sometimes emergencies wipe out personal savings; other times financial markets suffer substantial losses. Often it’s as simple as people living longer than they expected. The bottom line is that our founders, Jessie and Samuel Kenney, would never have dreamed of turning their backs on seniors without financial means — and neither will we.

That’s why we created The Kenney Foundation. Anyone can help seniors in need. Neighbor helping neighbor — isn’t that what a community really does? Learn more about how you can make a tax-deductible gift that enhances life, promotes dignity, and respects the unique seniors in our midst by contacting us today.

“People move in and live such a great lifestyle that they end up living longer than they expected — what a wonderful gift! We want our friends to be able to continue living here even after they have outlived their financial resources. That’s why we support The Resident Care Fund.”

– Ron Hanson, former Foundation Board Treasurer

Give today!

In addition to The Resident Care Fund to support residents whose financial resources fall short, donations to the Foundation also help support The Kenney’s most pressing yearly needs, such as transportation and program enhancements for residents.

Planned gifts, such as remembrances in your will or charitable remainder trusts,  are another way to help The Kenney while also creating a legacy for you, the donor. Planned gifts also offer many ways to save on taxes and (depending on the type of gift) can provide donors with increased income.

We also welcome memorial gifts in memory or honor of a loved one, friend, or special occasion.

The Kenney Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Gifts are tax-deductible as allowed by law.
