A Bit of Background

Here at Katrina Amos Kids' Empowerment(K.A.K.E) Fund, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all by providing assistance to poor and less fortunate children and young adults.

This charity was founded to honor the memory of Katrina LeReatha Amos who lost her life in a drowning accident at the age of 13. Growing up in poverty and depending on the kindness of others has been strong motivation in forming this charity.

Although we are aware that we can not help all of the less fortunate children and young adults in our community, it is our hope that we can make a difference by helping as many as we can. Our long term goal is to provide scholarships for deserving high school seniors, offer food drives during the holidays, offer school supplies during the school year and host community toy drive.  We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.
