From time to time, the Kenedy Foundation sees a compelling need in the community and initiates a grant to meet that need. Such initiatives in recent years have been in the area of Catholic school education. Education, particularly Catholic education, has been the number one priority for the foundation in recent years.
The Grants staff has always scheduled selective site visits for grant applicants. Recently, an extensive program of site visits to Catholic schools and churches has been initiated, which may result in future initiatives.
