Jeff and Keltie Keller Family Fund
Supporting arts programs for kids and youth in Perth County
Jeff and Keltie Keller didn’t have much exposure to arts programs in their community. But then their six-year-old daughter signed herself up for a school talent contest, and won.
After that, it was one arts program after another. Today this young lady is finishing up a four-year degree at one of the country’s best musical- theatre schools.
“All three of our kids became heavily involved in the arts, and the skills they learned were incredible,” says Keltie. “But we knew these programs were always short of money. We wanted to help – to make sure that experience would always be there for the kids in our community.”
The Kellers decided the best way to accomplish this would be to establish a fund with the Community Foundation. Today they’re excited to watch this fund grow, and looking forward to seeing what it will support in the future.
“The Community Foundation is really the heartbeat of our community – we can’t imagine a better partner in helping us build a legacy for tomorrow’s young artists,” says Jeff.
