Kimberly-Shirk Association


Share, Educate, & Inspire

Kimberly Crest is owned and operated by the Kimberly-Shirk Association a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Guided by a board of trustees made up of active community leaders from throughout the nation, the association is committed to its mission to:

  • Share and preserve the aesthetic experience of the estate;
  • Educate visitors about the events, people, objects and cultural significance of Kimberly Crest; and
  • Inspire people of all ages through the visionary leadership of Mary Kimberly-Shirk and her lifelong commitment to education, philanthropy and service to others.

As a private nonprofit organization, we do not receive city funding, relying solely on the generosity of donors, grantmakers, visitors, and volunteers to remain open six to seven days a week.
