Kingston, N.Y. – December 22, 2019 – The Klock Kingston Foundation, through Key Private Bank as Trustee, awarded a $25,000 grant to support the Benedictine Health Foundation’s Cancer Patient Emergency Assistance Fund.

“We thank the Klock Foundation and Key Private Bank for their continuous support of our mission. The Cancer Patient Emergency Assistance Fund enhances our capabilities to assist with bills and is a life changing means of support for people struggling with a cancer diagnosis”, stated Julie Krieger, President of the Benedictine Health Foundation.

The Benedictine Health Foundation’s mission is to raise and distribute financial resources to those struggling with a cancer diagnosis and whose financial means limit their ability to access or receive the care that they need. Assistance is provided to Ulster County residents and their families or those from neighboring counties receiving medical services in Ulster County.

Members from KeyBank and Key Private Bank presented the check to Benedictine Health Foundation on December 10.

“KeyBank is delighted to present this grant on behalf of the Klock Foundation,” said Key Private Bank Sales Leader Virginia Kuper. “We are proud to support Benedictine Health Foundation in advancing their mission to ensure that cancer patients in our community receive the quality and compassionate healthcare they need regardless of their financial situation.”
