Two Decades of Making a Difference

Posted by

The Landfall Foundation has been a huge part of the Wilmington community for the last twenty-two years. The philanthropic organization founded by Frank Kenan is a way for the Landfall Community to help people in the Wilmington area by donating to multiple charities. Since it’s founding in 1995 the foundation has raised over 4 million dollars.

With a minimal overhead of only 3% the vast majority of donations go directly to the community. This is made possible by the low overhead and the board members all being volunteers. In the past twenty-two years eighty non-profits organizations have benefitted from the Landfall Foundation, and the majority of these were in the arts, education, and welfare. A few notable organizations that receive funding are the Landfall Scholars, which grants Landfall employees’ scholarships, Arlie Gardens, St. Mary’s Dental Clinic, and the Brigade Boys and Girls Club.

To help bring in donations the Landfall Foundations hosts numerous fundraisers. The most popular is the Landfall Foundation Gala, which raises almost 70% of the foundation’s revenue. Other events include a gold tournament, marathon, and art show.

The Landfall Foundation has been making a difference in Wilmington for over two decades thanks to the dedication of the board members and the support from the Landfall Community.
