Attention Kenston Parents:
The Kenston Foundation was founded in 1983, as a 501(c3) non-profit corporation to provide an avenue for individuals and corporate donors to promote academic excellence with tax deductible gifts. These gifts are then awarded as Kenston Scholarships and Educational Grants.
Your generous donations directly benefit Kenston students K-12 and graduating seniors.
Last year we awarded 28 scholarships to Kenston High School Seniors totaling $28,000. The Foundation manages funds for memorial scholarships, then interviews, selects and presents to recipients. We also have matched funds and sponsored standing scholarships directly with the funds from your generosity here, through the stars and notes programs on performance nights and other fundraising efforts throughout the year.
The KENSTON FOUNDATION provided educational grants reaching students K-12 covering educational programming in every building on campus. Last year’s grants include Professional Video Equipment – KHS, Kiln for KMS, Choral Risers, World Language Readers for KMS/KHS, Funding for Creating Exceptional Character – KHS Special Education, KIS Chromebooks, Spike Ball sets – KMS , and RAZ-kids software for Timmons.
If your students have participated in One School, One Book at Timmons; the drama workshops and arts festival at the Intermediate School, used Chromebooks or ScootPad in the classroom, seen a program at the KHS Auditorium, watched Brain POP media at KMS, or used our on-line research videos, or the 3-D printer at the High School or the Kiln at KMS, they have benefitted from a Kenston Foundation Educational Grant.
Each year The KENSTON FOUNDATION receives educational grant requests averaging $30k. Unfortunately, the foundation only has the ability to fulfill a fraction of them. Your donations have direct impact on funding these educational needs!
