2023 Annual Campaign
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We are excited to share that we have cleared the title and are ready to begin our Beachwood Avenue project! This means that there will be six new homes ready to welcome new working families and seniors in the fall of 2025. It’s an exciting project that will require $400,000 in capital fundraising over the next two years, but we know we can do it with the support of our amazing community! And that’s not all we have to celebrate - thanks to the support of donors, in 2023 the Kennebunkport Heritage Housing Trust:
Held our first KHHT Pickleball Classic in June - a truly smashing (and dinking) success
Spent many hours building organizational capacity through a new mission and vision statement, by documenting committee policies and procedures, and through establishing clear organizational goals for the coming year
Welcomed new voices to our committees and created a new committee, the Stewardship Committee, to serve the needs of our current and future homeowners.
Enhanced the landscaping at Heritage Woods
Identified possible future build sites and worked with architects and engineers to better understand the build potential of each site
All of this work would not have been possible without individual donors committed to affordable housing!
By expanding our organizational capacity this year we are ready to tackle more than one project at a time and while we break ground for six new homes on Beachwood Avenue in 2024, we will also continue to pursue other land acquisition opportunities.
The quickly changing housing landscape makes our work more important than ever - we have homes to build and a community to strengthen through year-round neighbors in safe, efficient, affordable houses! Your support makes our work possible, thank you for considering KHHT in your charitable giving.
With deepest gratitude,
The Kennebunkport Heritage Housing Trust Board
