We at the KLD Foundation send our thoughts and prayers to the friends and family of Nora Hankins.
If you would like to leave a donation in memory of Nora, please do so here. All notes left will be passed on to the family of Nora.
Per the family's wishes, all memorial gifts will be distributed evenly between the Alzheimer’s Association and Joyful Journey Adult Day Service.
Our 2018 A Night to Remember was a tremendous success - all because of you! We will be sharing our total amounts soon, but it was a record breaking year for the KLD Foundation! Thank you for your support!!
Thank you to all of our volunteers - some of whom are pictured to the left - as well as everyone that bought tickets and came out to support this event!

Thank you to the Lafayette Sam’s Club for donating the sausage for the breakfast! Thank you to our anonymous donor for covering the overhead for this event! Thank you Lafayette!

Thank you to Chris Morisse Vizza for doing a story on the KLD Foundation, and sharing a little bit about the real KLD - Karen Lee Dubea. Watch and listen as Tyler shares about the work the KLD Foundation is doing, and as Jayne Flinn - Director of Joyful Journey, one of the KLD Foundation’s partners - explains some of the benefits of the work the KLD Foundation is doing in our local community!
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?
