Always striving to make a difference where it is needed most, Sally Werst McKeen’s life has been defined by her unwavering support for the community.
More than just a donor, Sally has volunteered as a board member for over 30 nonprofit organizations, including Tarrant Area Food Bank, Leadership Fort Worth, Cancer Care Services and North Texas Community Foundation. Her father’s need for hospice care led Sally to become a driving force in creating Community Healthcare of Texas – the largest nonprofit hospice provider in the state.
“It’s important for me to give to causes I care about so that my favorite health and human needs nonprofits can carry on in providing much-needed services to our community,” said Sally McKeen.
Today, Sally honors her parents’ legacy of giving by managing the endowed Doris C. and Harry K. Werst Fund. She also utilizes her personal fund at the Community Foundation to strengthen area nonprofits, respond to community needs and support veteran organizations in memory of her late husband, Major General Chet McKeen. As a Legacy Society donor, Sally finds peace of mind knowing that a portion of her own estate will continue to ensure the longevity of the organizations and causes she supports – long beyond her lifetime.
