Mission

Helen Freeborn Kerr and her husband owned a ranch in the area of Somerset, Texas. Her husband was a groundskeeper at Randolph Air Force Base. He died of cancer in his 80s. Helen lived very simply and took delight in helping people.

While grant distributions are made each year to several charitable organizations named by Mrs. Freeborn Kerr, she also requested that the remaining funds be granted to 501(c)(3) charities for the sole purpose of research to find a cure for cancer.

Guidelines

Grants typically range from $2,500 to $5,000.
