Gary and Joyce Kallsen integrated charitable giving into their financial strategy years ago. Together with their children, they’ve made grants from their InFaith Community Foundation donor-advised fund to support favorite charities and causes.

Keith Allen Hinrichsen, a native of La Mesa, Calif., was fully devoted to his family, students and church as a History professor at Cerritos College. After 37 years of teaching, his extended family supported him through his own diagnosis and return of prostate cancer. Upon his death, Keith directed support to a variety of charities, including programs that addressed the unmet needs of patients with Alzheimer’s through The Hinrichsen-Thorsen Family Health Fund.

Ruth Reinke and her spouse, Wilbert Reinke, were deeply devoted to their local community of Neligh, Neb. Through the care they received at Antelope Memorial Hospital, the couple established The Wilbert and Ruth Reinke Community Endowment Fund at InFaith Community Foundation. With the support of the Reinkes, AMH has been able to grow and serve the community in transformational ways.
