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 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 600 grants totaling over $400,000 have been awarded since 2006.
