Our Story

THE KATHY B. DAVIS FOUNDATION, a 501c3 organization, was established in 2011 in memory of Kathy Davis, a loving wife to her husband, Dave, devoted mother to her sons, Chris, Eric and Matt, and passionate advocate for people with intellectual and developmental challenges.  To honor her legacy, Dave established the foundation with a single mission:


"To support and create life enhancing opportunities for individuals with intellectual/
developmental challenges.” 

















Dave's original goal was to reach out to the community to bring together people from all walks of life, focusing on enriching the lives of others, as Kathy always did.  The success of the foundation's initial programs drove Dave to expand on Kathy’s dedication to the special needs population and grow the organization’s sphere to include senior citizens and area volunteers who had a desire to serve their neighbors.

What We Do


Flowers for a Purpose

Flowers for a Purpose brings together people with intellectual/developmental challenges and area senior citizens who want to learn about flowers and create beautiful floral 
arrangements.  The finished bouquets are then shared with the participants and other community members to brighten their days


Caring During COVID

If there is one thing 2020 has taught us, it is the importance of human interaction.  Click here to see how Flowers for a Purpose volunteers have adapted their monthly efforts to stay connected to the community they serve.

Special Needs Golf Clinic

The Special Needs Golf Clinic is the original KBDF program and is held prior to the start of the annual fund raising golf tournament. Volunteers work with area residents who have intellectual or developmental challenges to teach them basic golf skills and a love of the game.
