Keller Community Senior Fund, Inc., History
In 2012, Elaine Rice presented a petition with over 100 names to the City Council requesting the Council to consider building a new Senior Activities Center. Fast forward to July of 2016 when a small group of volunteers, headed by Carol Rubino, met to discuss how they could help the KSAC accomplish their goals. They discussed the prospect and purpose of establishing a non-profit organization to:
support the needs of the KSAC and the needs of the senior members of the KSAC
ensure that the City of Keller feasibility study of the KSAC would include the concerns of its members
explore the offerings of other senior centers in the area, which helps to establish standards
identify the processes necessary for promoting numerous activities, donations and support that the members provide to the community and businesses in the Keller area
determine how to acquire resources, both monetary and in-kind contributions, to support a non-profit organization
Those in attendance at the July 2016 meeting identified their individual skills and knowledge regarding the above and agreed to continue to take the necessary steps to assist in this endeavor. During the few months prior to incorporation, the KCSF members developed promotional material and presentations. A Power Point presentation to the Keller Parks and Recreation Board, which has the responsibility for the KSAC, covered the uniqueness and positive impact the KSAC has on seniors in the community. Our Mission, Vision and Purpose were presented and applauded by the Committee members.
Since that time, meetings were held and more volunteers committed their time and expertise resulting in the application and final approval for the Keller Community Senior Fund to be incorporated as of December 5, 2016. A Board of Directors was identified, bylaws were approved, committees were established, outreach to community businesses and organizations was initiated, fundraising activities were implemented, legal documents completed and banking was established.
As a result of the hard work and dedication outlined above, The Keller Community Senior Fund, Inc., is an official non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
