UPDATE February 8, 2023:
The Kenston Foundations tax exempt status has been successfully reinstated.


Notice of full disclosure for the Kenston Foundation: As of August 8, 2022, The Kenston Foundation has temporarily had its Federal tax exempt status revoked.  We are still a non-profit corporation in good standing under the State of Ohio.  All steps for reinstatement of our tax exempt status with the federal government have been taken and we expect full reinstatement retroactive to August 8, 2022.  We are hoping to get resolution of this matter soon, however, it can take the IRS up to 18 months to finalize the reinstatement of our 501(c)(3) status.  Despite this temporary revocation, the Kenston Foundation will continue to award teacher grants and senior scholarships and will continue to fundraise to ensure we can support as many teachers and graduating seniors as possible.  We need you to be aware that for tax year 2022, your donations may not be deductible when you file your 2022 taxes and an amended return would need to be filed once our tax exempt status is reinstated so that you can take full advantage of donating to a 501(c)(3) corporation.  We will post back on our website once we have regained our tax exempt status.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Cheryl Spehar, Kenston Foundation President, at: KenstonFoundation22@gmail.com.  We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time and hope that you will continue to support our efforts in awarding teacher grants and senior scholarships.
