The Keizer Heritage Foundation is grateful for the donation of $36,328 from the estate of John and Gina Jenkins. This was an unknown, but very welcomed donation.
John Jenkins passed away in April of 2018, but the estate was just settled and distributed the funds in May of 2021.
John Jenkins was an active community volunteer; he was a member of the Rotary Club of Keizer, John Knox Presbyterian Church and Pack master of Keizer Cub Pack. He was named Keizer’s First Citizen in 1994 by the Keizer Chamber of Commerce.
John served as a member of the Keizer Heritage Foundation Board of Directors for several years in the early 2000s.
The Keizer Heritage Board of Directors gratefully acknowledges this generous donation and thanks the Jenkins family for remembering us. The donation will be used to continue to maintain and preserve the “Old Keizer School”, known as the Keizer Cultural Center, which has become home to four local non-profits serving the Keizer Community.
Curbside pickup at the Keizer Community Library will be suspended starting Monday, June 7 and continue thru Tuesday due to remodel construction project inside the library.

In 1988 a group of concerned Keizer citizens united to save the “Old Keizer School.” In a highly successful effort, they raised $250,000 that was matched by the City of Keizer and the school was saved! Today the “Old Keizer School” houses four non-profit volunteer-operated organizations that are unique in Keizer and directly benefit the Keizer Community.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you.
We wouldn't be here without the support of the Keizer Community.
There are so many ways to support our mission. Contact us to find out more about volunteer opportunities.
