The John Knox Village Foundation

Providing Support to benefit the Village, our residents, and the community

With the aim of bringing joy, comfort and support into the lives of older adults who are residents of John Knox Village and beyond, the John Knox Village Foundation is a strong supporter of the Village and its mission. The Foundation, which was established in 1983, works in a spirit of collaboration with residents and friends of the Village so they can assist in funding facilities and programs that otherwise would not be possible using existing funding sources.

Exceptional Past, Extraordinary Future: Continuing the Vision Together

John Knox Village Foundation Capital Giving Campaign

The Foundation is a proud supporter of the Village’s plans to strategically re-develop its campus. The three capital campaign projects have been hand-picked to complement the Village’s campus redevelopment efforts. Download the brochure here.

  • The Courtyard Theatre – This space in the Courtyard Commons will allow residents to enjoy movies and web-based continuing education. The room will seat 32 and will include plush theater seating, a large screen and a state-of-the-art projector and sound system.
  • Renovating the interior of The Pavilion – Easily one of the most recognizable landmarks in Eastern Jackson County, The Pavilion at John Knox Village is a multi-purpose event venue that residents, associates and members of surrounding communities across the Kansas City area use and enjoy. The capital campaign will fund new paint and carpet, refinishing the dance floor, upgraded sound system, and updated restrooms and concession stand.
  • The Meadows Complex Common Area – The Foundation will designate funds for something special in the Village’s newest neighborhood, The Meadows, by selecting a project that will enhance the planned common areas that will be enjoyed by residents and their guests.

Your gift to the Foundation’s capital campaign will touch the lives of countless residents, associates and guests to the John Knox Village Campus.
