“Alone we can do so little,
together we can do so much.”

– Helen Keller

We – The Kenney community and you – are an unstoppable force! Together, we feel the joy of giving to our seniors. We’re energized by the spirit and generosity of our community and of lives enriched by love, engagement, and caring human connection.

Support seniors at The Kenney with your gift to The Kenney Foundation today!

Gift Designations

Since the incorporation of The Kenney in 1901, ours is a story of investing to provide a “comfortable and safe home” for multiple generations of residents. That investment has been made possible through the generosity of people who saw the need and responded from the heart. As we envision the investments needed for the next generations, we hope that you will see your opportunity to participate.

We are, at heart, a residential community; a place where people live and thrive together through the joys and challenges of aging.  A great source of that joy involves staying connected with the culture and natural beauty of our area.  Your gift in support of gardening, music and activities will assure that our residents stay connected by increasing access and opportunities.

One challenge that can face any of us is the prospect of outliving the financial resources needed to cover the cost of housing and care. Your gift to the Resident Care Fund enables The Kenney to supplement the resources of residents who have outlived their resources.

Your unrestricted gift will allow The Kenney to support the needs already described and to invest in our services, programs and facilities. We welcome partners who would join us to improve the quality of our living spaces and experiences.

The expansion of our Memory Care will include additional apartments as well as our new “Connections Room,” a space designed to engage residents as they enjoy good food, exercise, the arts and activities that stir the spirit and imagination. Your gift to Memory Care will directly enhance the lives of the residents we serve.

You may pay tribute with your gift in memory or honor of a loved one, friend or special occasion.

“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
