Janet Comey, a Kendal at Longwood resident, left her estate in a trust because she wanted the trustees to have the joy of giving. Kendal Charitable Funds received $250,000 in late 2007 from the Janet Comey Foundation to start the Lloyd Lewis Fund for Promising Innovations “to change the individual experience of aging for the better.”
Kendal Charitable Funds has underwritten a minority community Alzheimer’s disease screening initiative in Tampa, Fla. The pilot program, now under development by the University of South Florida Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute in partnership with the National Black Nurses Association, could be adapted for nationwide dementia screening efforts in low-income communities.
Kendal at Hanover resident Jack Hemenway supports the Elizabeth Fry Fund to honor the memory of his wife, Harriet. The fund supplements the resources of public servants, enabling them to join the community.
