We remember Janet's legacy and are thankful that she made this decision to support the KML Foundation.

A Note from Chairman Chuck Wierschem

Here is a note from Chuck Wierschem, chairman of the Foundation board:

I have been honored and humbled to serve on the board for the KML Foundation for the past nine years. When I joined back in January 2009, the assets of the endowment fund were $370,000. With significant appreciation for God’s blessings to us, I am pleased to share that the KML Foundation has reached a significant milestone this year, by crossing over the $1,000,000 mark is total assets! The Lord has blessed the work of the foundation through many means including:

  • Direct individual donors
  • Estate gifts
  • Federation church contributions
  • Annual charity golf outing
  • Annual charity clay shoot

In addition to growing the assets of the endowment fund, the KML Foundation makes annual disbursements to support the work of KMLHS. Over the past nine years, KML Foundation has distributed a total of $268,865 to various areas of the KMLHS ministry. In the past three years alone, over $100,000 was given to KMLHS with the primary area of support being tuition assistance for current KML students.

An endowment fund such as the KML Foundation presents an opportunity to make charitable gifts that continue for generations. Donations can be anonymous or can be specifically named in the honor of a person, family, group or organization.

Consider supporting our efforts by naming the KML Foundation in your will or making direct gifts. Contact Paul Snamiska ( to learn about various ways you can make a difference through an estate gift.

Please also keep the work of the KML Foundation in your thoughts and prayers!
In His service,
Chuck Wierschem
