The Patricia Kind Family Foundation is a private, not-for-profit philanthropic organization, established in 1996 with a gift from the estates of Hedwig and Arnold Louis van Ameringen, parents of Patricia Kind. The Foundation is family managed and believes strongly in the importance of supporting families.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Foundation is to financially support non-profit organizations that help children, adults, and seniors obtain basic human needs, including food, shelter, clothing, education, and physical and mental health care. We are especially committed to helping individuals and families who struggle daily with the effects of poverty.

The Foundation is interested in encouraging practical, caring solutions to community problems by supporting preventive and direct service efforts. The Patricia Kind Family Foundation operates no programs of its own, but performs its mission by funding proven approaches from non-profit 501(c)3 organizations operating in the five-county Philadelphia region.
