The John Crain Kunkel Foundation sees equal value in all lives. And so we are dedicated to improving the quality of life for all individuals within the State of Pennsylvania.

In furtherance of that goal, the John Crain Kunkel Foundation supports religious, charitable, scientific, literary and educational purposes within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and primarily within Dauphin, Cumberland, Lebanon, Perry and Juniata Counties.

Grants will be considered to charities and institutions outside Pennsylvania, such as Yale University, so long as they serve in part an area, persons or communities within the Commonwealth.
