Program areas at John G. & Marie Stella Kenedy Memorial Foundation

See Schedule OThe Foundation makes all of its charitable donations within the State of Texas. Ten percent of its total charitable grants are made to non-sectarian entities, institutions that are defined as non-religious and not church related. Ninety percent of its total charitable distributions are made to sectarian entities. It is the Foundation's practice that a Catholic sectarian organization should be listed in the Official Catholic Directory. Of these sectarian grants, about 70% are made in the South Texas area which includes the Diocese of Brownsville, the Diocese of Corpus Christi, and the Diocese of Laredo. Education has been strongly favored in recent grant giving cycles including tuition assistance for Catholic schools and scholarships for Catholic and public universities. Service organizations and Catholic charities which target health, human services, the indigent, equal opportunity, and service to others are also favored. By continually evoking the Foundation's core values when making grant decisions, the Foundation is able to help countless numbers of people.
The Foundation has established a museum in the historic Kenedy Pasture Company building in the township of Sarita, Texas. Since its opening on October 21, 2003, approximately 17,891 individuals have toured the museum or participated in its programs. Examples of programs may be viewed at www.kenedyranchmuseum.org.
