Kingdom Enlightenment Foundation
The Kingdom Enlightenment Scholarship Foundation (KESF) was founded by Stephen S. Fredericks through his last Will and Testament. Steve died of malignant melanoma on April 13, 1991 at the young age of 34. Steve grew up in Southeast Denver, graduated from John F. Kennedy High School and attended college in Arizona. He later worked as a golf pro in Texas and it was about this time when Steve was diagnosed with cancer. Before he passed, Steve created this scholarship program to help educate the less fortunate young people in our society and hopefully break the poverty cycle. Since 1992, KESF has provided over half a million dollars to support recent graduates of Colorado high schools with demonstrated financial need to attend CCD.
