The Harry R. Kendall Hospital and Home Fund for Leadership Development Scholarships and Project Grants
          Information on Grants, Scholarship and Loans
Harry R. Kendall was a co-owner and founder of the Washington National Life Insurance Company of Evanston, Illinois. Prior to
his death in 1958, a large part of his fortune was placed in trust with the provision that income be paid to the Board of Hospitals
and Homes of the Methodist Church and its successor organizations and used for stipulated purposes. Over $6 million has been
allocated since 1958 for worthy projects and students.


Specifically, his will states:


I direct my said Trustees to pay, not less often than semi-annually, commencing upon the date of my death and thereafter for a
period of forty years, thirty percent of the net income of the residuary trust in convenient installments unto BOARD OF
HOSPITALS AND HOMES OF THE METHODIST CHURCH, a not-for-profit corporation of Illinois to be used by it for the
following charitable purposes.


     1.   To provide hospital service for the poor of the Negro race;
     2.   To provide homes for needy Negro children and needy aged persons of both the white and the Negro races;
     3.   To provide for the training of leaders for charitable service in hospitals and homes caring for needy Negro children and
