2017 Was A HUGE Success!

2018 Can Be Even Bigger!

Because of the generousity from our sponsors - Edward Jones, NeoVision, John & Connie Basham, BeeHive Homes, and JD Feaster - donations, and supporters like you, the KLD Foundation was able to invest $30,000 in 2017 for Alzheimer’s Care and Research!  This brought the KLD Foundation’s footprint to over $50,000 in battling this terrible disease!  Will you help us make 2018 even MORE successful?

The KLD Foundation’s History

We are named after Karen Lee Dubea

Karen Lee Dubea - daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, among many other titles - was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in the fall of 2011.  That is when the KLD Foundation was unofficially formed.  Officially, we became incorporated in April 2016.
