A Foreword from Ernestina Alonso, CEO

My work serving others ignites my passion for change

I was raised by a strong, independent, and generous woman, and an inspiring father figure, who taught my sister and me the importance of creating social impact by serving others. Following in the steps of her late husband, Chuck Kreutzkamp, my mother, Ernestina Kreutzkamp, highly values education and dignity and has always worked to improve the outlook of the less fortunate in her community and beyond.  

I also dedicate a sizable portion of my time and assets to help others rise from poverty while gaining a sense of accomplishment and self-worth. We are living in difficult times. Now more than ever, we need to band together to solve the most pressing issues facing our society. Our foundation's goal is to address their root cause and provide the necessary tools to move our communities forward. Together we can make this world a much better place to live. I hope you'll join the CEK Foundation's philanthropic efforts.

All the best,

Ernestina Alonso
President, CEO / CEK Foundation
