The Kelly Cares Foundation (KCF) was established by the Brian and Paqui Kelly family to support organizations, initiatives and programs that closely align with the goals and values of the Kelly family in three main pillars:
Health, Education, and Community.
At every stop on their path to Notre Dame, Coach Kelly and his wife, Paqui have consistently given back to their local community through service and support. Additionally, they have long supported causes that align with their goals and values, especially initiatives that promote awareness and research of breast cancer inspired by Paqui's two fights with the disease.
In only the first season of the KCF, Brian and Paqui have held various events including Football 101 and Golf Outings among others and culminating with the Inaugural Irish Eyes Dinner. All of these events and activities have helped Brian and Paqui recruit many new members of the KCF Team and helped raise significant dollars to support the three pillars of the KCF.
