The KRW Foundation is a public, non-profit 501(c)(3) charity founded in loving memory of Jeremy Kelleher, Joseph Ralicke, and Michael Wilding, three dear friends and fellow graduates of the Dunmore High School Class of 1998. The foundation is dedicated to supporting local charities that target youth and community development in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

When it comes to making a difference in improving children’s lives, there is a place for everyone to contribute. Child abuse and neglect is a community problem. Child care and protection is a community responsibility.
