Since 2007, The Killingworth Foundation has been building a charitable endowment to serve the citizens and the community of Killingworth. Our funds come from individual and group donations, and bequests from people who appreciate the continuity and flexibility that a permanent philanthropic foundation provides.

The Killingworth Foundation will provide seed money for new services and will fill needs not being met by other organizations or sources. In general, we will grant funds for special purposes, including buildings, equipment, land, and programs, but we will not commit the Foundation to recurring expenses.

Individuals or organizations making gifts or bequests to The Killingworth Foundation can be assured they have made a contribution that will be of enduring benefit to the town.

Now it's time to plant vegetables and flowers in your gardens. The KILLINGWORTH FOUNDATION invites you to plant lots of sunflowers and join the sunflower planting spree. Then, after they have grown to their glorious height and color, come to the third annual SUNFLOWER GATHERING at Parmelee Farm on September 10, 2016. All entries must be submitted to the Gathering between 10-11 on the day of the event.

This is on the same day as the Killingworth Farmers' market. Prizes will be awarded in several categories, so plan to join in the fun. In May and June free seeds will be available at the Town Office Building and the Killingworth Library
