Waterhouse Center Advisory Committee
Waterhouse Youth Endowment
In 2013, a long-time Kennebunk resident and her granddaughter donated a $1.5 million endowment (in perpetuity) to the Town of Kennebunk to foster and enhance the health and well-being of local youth by providing recreational and educational opportunities in a safe and healthy environment in downtown Kennebunk.

In conjunction with the endowment, and with the generous donations and support from local residents and businesses, the Town is building a unique four season open Family Pavilion Center on the 51 Main Street lot. The pavilion has been named the “Waterhouse Center”, after the donors, the Waterhouse family.   Fundraising efforts are currently underway. 

Proceeds from the endowment will be used for the maintenance of a new ice skating rink, provide free ice skating for the community’s youth, and a wide variety of year-long activities for youth and their families. Multi-generational programming will include educational, athletic, team-building, cultural and civic-oriented activities.

About the Committee
The Waterhouse Center Advisory Committee shall make recommendations to the Board of Directors of the Waterhouse Youth Endowment Fund for distributions and grants to be made from that fund in support of programs and events to be held at the Waterhouse Center.  If you have suggestions for an activity, please feel free to contact us.
