Elk County Community Foundation Announces "Kinsley Kronenwetter Sunshine Fund"

July 14, 2020

A recently created fund is the Kinsley Kronenwetter Sunshine Fund. Kinsley was the epitome of joy and happiness, even through all of the trials she had been facing. Kinsley passed away unexpectedly in January 2018 and her family has devoted their energy into spreading her sunshine to those who will never be able to witness it themselves.

This fund will award grants to non profit groups or organizations, from Clearfield or Elk County, who have a project for spreading extra joy to the children in our communities.

Donations to this new fund can be mailed to the Elk County Community Foundation at P.O. Box 934, St. Marys, PA, 15857, Online donations will also be accepted through our website at www.elkcountyfoundation.org. Use the Donate Now button on the top of the page and please indicate the Kinsley Kronenwetter Sunshine Fund as the fund name.

For questions about applying for a grant or making a donation to the Fund, please contact the ECCF office at 814-834-2125.

Given the uncertainty in the near-term, we have rescheduled the collection until Saturday, Aug. 29, from 9-noon here at the center. We did not want to cancel the collection and hope that people will still take advantage of the service. We will continue to keep people informed of the new date and print new flyers.
