With a heavy heart, The Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation acknowledges the passing of our founder, Kay Lokoff on December 28, 2017. Kay is survived by husband Fred, children Steven & Lisa Lokoff, Robert Lokoff, and Jamie & Jodi Lokoff, and six grandchildren.
Since establishing the Foundation in Terri's memory with Fred in 1987, Kay has been a tireless force in supporting the Foundation's mission and growing its influence and reach, benefitting thousands of children and early education teachers throughout the United States. Kay has been an inspiration to family, friends and colleagues and we will miss her dearly.
Starting with a $25,000 donation used to build a new classroom and teacher’s lounge at a day care center in Philadelphia’s Overbrook section, the foundation now provides grants to non-profit, non-sectarian child care centers in the Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties, gives $500 awards annually to 50 teachers nationwide, and supports students studying early care and education.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions in her memory be made to the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation (www.tllccf.org).
