Our Mission

The nationally recognized Keenan's Kids Foundation was formed in 1993 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with three separate missions: charity, community awareness and child advocacy.  Our mission is not to provide grants to other non-profit organizations or outside activities, but rather to use our own funds to maintain a multitude of projects within the area of child advocacy.  With one extraordinary exception, the Keenan’s Kids Foundation has never, and will never, engage in fundraising.
 

 

Charity

At Keenan's Kids Foundation, we work to improve the daily lives and the future of children. Through clothing drives, feeding the homeless, children’s events and fundraisers like the Murphy House Project and Stars of the South, KKF strives to meet the needs of our community’s children and promote their well-being.

 
 

 

Community Awareness

For over 17 years, Keenan’s Kids Foundation has been dedicated to informing the public about child safety hazards and working to reduce those hazards, as well as advocating for the needs of at-risk children within the legal community. Our press conferences and media campaigns, ethics speeches and the annual Law School Competition inform and advance the work of those who act on behalf of children.

 
 

 

Child Advocacy

The Keenan’s Kids Foundation is a premiere source for providing honest, commonsense information regarding child safety. Mr. Keenan’s book, 365 Ways to Keep Kids Safe, the Kids Safety Bulletin and the Article Syndication program all provide information to prevent child injury and promote the Foundation’s aim to inform the community on all levels.
