Kirk Family Fund

Krik Family

Although Carson Kirk moved away from Quincy at age 12, it has never been far from his mind. “I was born in Quincy and have always had a special place in my heart for Quincy. My roots are here.”

Carson’s parents, Houston and Carolyn Kirk, met when they were both working as teachers. When Houston passed away, Carson established the Kirk Family Foundation to benefit the Quincy Public Schools, honoring his parents’ legacy as educators.

After Carolyn passed away, he again wanted to honor his parents by giving back to the community that helped to shape his family. Knowing that his mother’s friend Charlotte Spear had worked with the Community Foundation to give back, Carson felt that establishing a fund would be an effective way to keep his parent’s memory alive.

With this in mind, Carson established the Kirk Family Fund in 2016. Carson knew that an unrestricted endowment would not only leave a legacy for his parents, but continue to grow while adapting to the community’s changing needs.
