Support Kendal at Lexington
Kendal at Lexington’s very existence is by virtue of the generosity of area residents, community leaders, and the Bartenstein family, who donated the picturesque 85 acres of land our community calls home.
We continue this culture of giving in many ways. Residents generously donate to the Staff Appreciation Fund and the Fellowship Fund.
As a not-for-profit organization, we also greatly appreciate contributions from family, friends and employers.
Philanthropy has played a key role in the development of the Kendal organization.
Those involved in the beginning of the first Kendal community set a tone of generosity—of spirit, of time, of talent, and of resources. This spirit of generosity continues to characterize life at Kendal at Lexington through gifts that have made possible financial assistance for residents, capital improvements, internships for students, and accumulation of charitable reserves.
