The Edna G. Kynett Memorial Foundation’s Mission

The Edna G. Kynett Memorial Foundation, Inc. was founded in 1954 by Harold H. Kynett in memory of his wife, Edna. The Foundation’s mission is the “scientific study, prevention, early diagnosis and alleviation of diseases of the human heart and circulatory system; and the training of students, general practitioners, and specialists” in that area.

The Kynett Foundation seeks to fulfill Mr. Kynett’s vision by funding innovative projects, particularly those targeting the underserved, designed to improve the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease and advance the understanding of cardiac health. The Foundation focus areas are community health, professional education, and research programs. In particular, the Foundation seeks proposals to reduce exposure to risk factors for cardiovascular disease in young children and their families and programs utilizing community health workers.
