Happening Now

Help Us Cross the
$1 Million Mark!

When the Kara Kennedy Fund was founded in 2014, the first learn-to-swim program it supported was at Horizons Greater Washington (3 sites) with just over 300 students. We have grown each year adding the swim programs at Horizons Greater Boston (3 sites as of 2021), and Horizons Newark (NJ). In 2022, we will expand to the West Coast adding Horizons at San Francisco Friends School to bring the number of children learning to swim to more than 1,000 annually. And it’s all thanks to you.

The Kara Kennedy Fund has donated over $200,000 to these Horizons organizations over the last eight years, continuing through the pandemic to fund tech needs, address food insecurity, and keep physical activity and wellness programs part of Horizons’ offerings. Fingers crossed, swimming will come roaring back this coming summer. On behalf of all the kids “swimming towards achievement,” please help us to reach the Fund’s $1 million goal by making an end-of year contribution now.
