The Living Building Chronicle

Connecting Social, Economic, and Ecological Challenges at the Community Level

The Kendeda Fund is a private grantmaking foundation based in Atlanta, Georgia. We empower communities across the US and around the globe to develop solutions that increase equity, vibrancy, resourcefulness, and resilience. We also help underrepresented but trusted voices build and sustain social and community capital by supporting experienced, and emerging, leaders who have the vision to see problems differently and the courage to challenge conventional thinking.  And we work to shift perceptions and disrupt the status quo by supporting projects that challenge social, economic, and ecological assumptions.
