Leadership


In carrying out our mission, our primary objective is to establish and maintain integrity and excellence in all aspects of our work. We strive for excellence in management and governance, seeking and developing board members and staff dedicated to our mission and values, while building partnerships with those we serve. We value participation, transparency and consensus building by nurturing careful listening and effective decision-making.

Board of Directors


Kendal selects board members with a wide variety of backgrounds whose desire to serve arises from a religious or philosophical base and a deep ethical commitment to our mission and values. We operate in accordance with basic principles of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) and from a not-for-profit perspective. Board members serve as volunteers. Conflicts of interest are disclosed, including those inherent in community members serving on the boards.

Philanthropy

The Kendal idea fosters a culture of generosity, encouraging and developing full use of our time, talent and resources. Philanthropy has played a key role in the development of the Kendal organization. The original articles of incorporation stated that Kendal would “furnish … financial security for persons who have been admitted to such facilities by maintaining at less than the regular charges any resident who becomes unable to pay such charges….” Kendal Charitable Funds was established in 1989 to support the charitable purposes of the Kendal System of communities, services and programs for older adults.
