"HOME Foundation Endowment Capital Campaign Kicks Off"

The "No Place Like Home" capital campaign seeks to raise at least $250,000 by 2031 for the Kensington HOME Foundation permanent endowment. This will fund at least $10,000 of annual community grants. The Foundation has received a gift of $10,000 from John and Kim Levin to launch fundraising efforts. They have also made a matching challenge of $15,000 in honor of Evelyn and memory of Arnold "Tarzan" Levin. The board needs your help to ensure we get the entirety of the matching funds. Please contact Adam Synoground for more information or to make a donation.
