For the past 15 years, Tamanend has held KAD Day to raise money in support of the good work done by the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Foundation. This web page will help acquaint you to the KADMF and Tamanend's KAD Day as well as ways that you can get involved.

What is the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund?

The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund was started the day after Peggy and Joe Dolan lost their 6-year old daughter, Kelly Anne, to a rare form of leukemia. The Fund's purpose then and now is to help other families who are dealing with the illness or disability of a child. See the link below for more information about the Fund.

Past, Present, and Future...

Last year, Tamanend raised $27,843 for the KADMF bringing our 14-year total to $362,218 The Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund recognized the students and staff of Tamanend Middle School for our support of the work they do by honoring us with their Compassionate Care Award in 2012. Our long-standing relationship with the Fund has grown into a unifying, school-wide service project that provides TMS students the opportunity to go beyond themselves to help others. Many former students remain connected to the Kelly Anne Dolan Memorial Fund and Tamanend's KAD Project well beyond their TMS years.
