Incorporated in 1954 in DE - The Edna G. Kynett Memorial Foundation was founded in 1954 by Harold H. Kynett in memory of his wife, Edna.

Purpose and Activities

Harold H. Kynett created the Edna G. Kynett Memorial Foundation to improve cardiovascular health in the Delaware Valley through education, research and community health programs. The foundation seeks to fulfill Mr. Kynett's vision by funding innovative projects which will advance the understanding of cardiac disease, as well as those which contribute to improved prevention and treatment. The foundation currently accepts proposals in any of three broad areas: professional education, research and programs to improve cardiovascular health in certain communities or populations. The Board encourages and gives particular consideration to proposals designed to improve the cardiac health of populations that have a higher than average risk of heart disease and that are generally underserved by the current health system. Kynett funding may not be utilized for routine medical care unless such services are provided as an essential component of a program to test innovative methods of health service delivery.
