About Us

The Dorothy Marie Kinnard Foundation was established in 2012 for the purpose of raising awareness with the devastating effects of diabetes among the African American populous. The plight to help educate others began when Dorothy Marie Kinnard passed away on September 3, 2011 after battling the debilitating disease for more than three decades. Her life story is quite simple- she was a dedicated mother, grandmother and servant with the gift of giving. As part of her legacy, the fight to help combat the escalating rise of diabetes among African Americans through various initiatives will continue.
