Kevin Kieff built a fondness for local history at an early age. An affinity for his hometown of Cape Vincent and learning about family lineage fostered a greater love for the North Country over time. From overseeing 24 New York State parks in four counties, to serving as a council member for the city of Watertown, Kevin has tried to help his community in a number of ways. In this conversation, he reflects on his life in Northern New York and shares several examples of giving that has made a meaningful difference to the region.

“The most important aspect of vibrant philanthropy in the community is that it really knits together the generations. I think it brings together so many different aspects of a community and the people that live in it, in a bit of a cohesive pattern that it wouldn’t have if it weren’t there.”
