"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” Winston Churchill

About the Endowment Fund to Advance Kennebunk

The Endowment Fund to Advance Kennebunk is an endowment fund designed to promote partnerships between the Town and the private sector to support public programs. The Funds will serve as an important vehicle for foundations, corporations and individuals to contribute to Town programs, special projects and events and other items that enhance the lives of the residents of Kennebunk.

The Endowment Fund is committed to facilitating innovative public-private partnerships that support the Town's emerging needs, while simultaneously evaluating the efficacy and merit of programs for future funding. Your support may go to different programs in areas including the environment, youth development, health, financial empowerment, volunteerism, and the arts. 

What is the Endowment Fund?
An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. Endowment assets are invested. Each year, a portion of the growth value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose, and any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value. In this way, an endowment fund can grow and provide support for its designated purpose in perpetuity. When you establish an endowment fund, you create a permanent legacy of support for Kennebunk.

Why Give?
Endowments and special purpose gifts exist in perpetuity and are a great way to give back to your community and leave your legacy. 


The Kennebunk Endowment Fund program is unique in its ability to make an impact in so many diverse areas of community need. Your contribution allows for continued improvement in our community...today and tomorrow.
