We Know What You’re Going Through

Our founder, Kristi Kinzler, lost her husband Jason in 2011. He was one mile from the finish line of the River Bank Run. As the mother of three young children, she was devastated. Kristi wanted to help other families who experience sudden loss, which inspired her to found the Kinzler Family Foundation. Today, thanks to the generous support of the community, we are able to provide guidance, support and financial assistance to families who experience the sudden loss of a primary caregiver. Our foundation can help pay for funerals, medical expenses, housing, child care or whatever is needed.
