KSA is a 501-C3 Non-Profit organization created to operate Kimberly Crest on behalf of the people of Redlands. Before her death Mary Kimberly-Shirk provided the organization with a $1 million dollar endowment. The interest from those funds are used to operate the organization however the majority of the budget required to keep the doors open comes from fundraisers and donations by community members.
Kimberly-Shirk Association is dedicated to the preservation of Kimberly Crest House & Gardens to:
- Share the aesthetic experience of the estate;
- Educate visitors about the history and significance of the events, people, objects and culture of Kimberly Crest; and
- Inspire in others the vision and leadership in education, philanthropy, community and human values exemplified by Mary Kimberly Shirk.
