The Kent Community Fund is working closely with the Town of Kent and its social services director, Leah Pullaro, to ensure that all residents' needs are met during the current coronavirus health crisis, through support of the Kent Food Bank and assistance with other emergency needs.
The Kent Community Fund is a non-profit organization established in 2006 to help individuals in Kent, Connecticut meet emergency needs and to support community charitable programs serving the citizens of Kent.
As a result of the Kent Nursing Association’s merger with KCF in 2018, KCF’s mission has expanded to include health and wellness services, through its' support of local Visiting Nurse Associations.
Through confidential emergency grants, KCF provides a vehicle for Kent residents to offer a helping hand to neighbors facing economic pressures due to illness, job loss or catastrophic events such as fires or accidents.
Support for children, families and elders is a priority.
More than 565 grants totaling over $330,000 have been awarded since 2006.
KCF is a totally volunteer operation with no paid staff and modest overhead expenses.
