Legacy Fund

Families Matter.Established in 2021 to ensure the long-term viability of MREC, this fund will help continue providing relationship education for students, couples and families.

If you’ve never met the McKennas we hope you get the chance to. Our co-founders are formers teachers and Bill is a retired coach and athletic director. Both have been active in the community for many decades.


From the Jaycees, to the Jr. Women’s Club, to numerous clubs and other organizations, the two remain actively involved, particularly in their local church. They believe wholeheartedly in the value of strong marriages and families and have dedicated their retirement years to building an organization that can provide healthy relationship education to thousands of students, couples and families.


When marriages are strong, children thrive. The community thrives at every turn. The Legacy Fund helps ensure that future marriages and families have what they need to succeed.

Double Your Gift

This summer, donors to the fund will see their gift doubled through an anonymous $15,000 donation. Why not get on board early with your support?


As a special thank you to all who invest in building a legacy of strong marriages and families during the next 90 days, a celebratory dinner will be held this fall to recognize those who make a gift or pledge of $1,000 or more.
