Kisner Foundation makes $1.2 million donation

The Kevin and Brittany Kisner Foundation has given $1.2 million to Children’s Hospital of Georgia, according to an April 7 news release.

The gift is part of the Kisner Foundation’s $5.3 million pledge to create the Kisner Foundation & Friends Center for Pediatric Development, Behavioral Health and Well-being at the not-for-profit Children’s Hospital.

Children’s health is a major focus for the Kisner Foundation, a non-profit started by Aiken native and PGA Tour golfer Kevin Kisner and his wife Brittany, who worked at Children’s Hospital of Georgia for several years as a speech pathologist.

The Children’s Hospital of Georgia is among several nonprofit organizations across the Augusta-Aiken area that received funding this week from the Kisner Foundation.
