About the Foundation
Our vision is a world without meningococcal disease.
The Kimberly Coffey Foundation was founded in memory of Kimberly Coffey, who passed away from Meningitis B in 2012. The mission of The Kimberly Coffey Foundation is to educate the public and healthcare professionals about bacterial meningitis (meningococcal disease) including the symptoms of the disease and the importance of prevention with two types of vaccines.
Learn more about meningitis and the vaccines available to help protect you.
Our vision is a world without meningococcal disease, so that no other family must endure the loss of a child or have a loved one experience the devastating effects of meningococcal disease.
The logo for the Foundation features a lighthouse symbolizing Kim's shining beacon of light, guiding us all with knowledge of meningococcal disease - navigating us to a day when meningitis will be an illness of the past. The lighthouse also represents her love of the beach. And of course, it’s purple – her favorite color.
As the Kimberly Coffey Foundation, we will be Kimberly’s voice. In doing so, we will honor Kimberly and continue her legacy.
The Kimberly Coffey Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization in New York, U.S.A.
