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, our mission has expanded to include assistance with health and wellness services, through RVNAhealth, VNA & Hospice of Litchfield County and other local Visiting Nurse Associations.

 

Through confidential emergency grants made through the Town of Kent's Social Services Department, 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 650 grants totaling over $485,000 have been awarded since 2006.

 

KCF is a totally volunteer operation with no paid staff and modest overhead expenses.
