Donate to the John Alec Kenealy Memorial Fund
A new endowed fund established in memory of a former tutor will provide support for current and future students of Cluster Tutoring. The John Alec Kenealy Memorial Fund honors the memory of John Kenealy, who volunteered at Cluster Tutoring as a high school student. He enlisted in the U.S. Army after studying business at Elmhurst College. He was a specialist and vehicle commander in the Attack Company of the 4th Battalion, 17th Infantry Regiment, with whom he was deployed to Afghanistan. John died in August 2018.
John's parents, Dave and Janet Kenealy are long-time tutors, and his sister, Anne Kenealy, tutored while in college.
The John Kenealy Memorial Fund will provide support for educational enrichment beyond the scope of the tutoring program itself, such as paying for a educational trip, a special math program, or special supplies for class. In future years, the fund could help with college and other post-graduate programs.
The fund will be managed through the Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation. To donate online, access this link. Those wishing to donate by mail can make checks payable to Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation, with “Kenealy Memorial Fund” in the memo line. Checks can be mailed to:
