Betty and John Kemper

The Community West Foundation awarded Betty and John Kemper, Sr. with the 2006 Art of Caring Award for their inspirational philanthropy and true commitment to charitable giving in our community.

The Kempers represent a new generation of philanthropists. They are inspiring others to do greater things for their communities. Betty and John have opened two separate Donor Advised Funds at the Foundation. Betty’s attention to those who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease has prompted her to open the Memory Care Fund that will help with dementia care and educate the caregivers taking care of these patients. John has opened the John W. Kemper, Sr. Fund and will use it to further the aims and goals of the Community West Foundation to support the many needs of our community.

Betty and John Kemper have scattered with a hand priceless seeds that reap golden grain. Their passion for good works is expressed in their deeds of benevolence and in the promotion of their philanthropy. If Albert Schweitzer was correct when he said that, “The only ones among you who will be really happy are those of you who have sought and found how to serve”, then Betty and John Kemper are truly happy.
