The Kent County Fund for the Arts, a fund of the CenDel Foundation, was created in 2008 through a generous contribution by Rosemary M. Twilley, in memory of Joshua M. Twilley, Esq., and with additional support from members of the Kent County community, the CenDel Foundation, and arts patrons across the state. The fund’s assets are administered by the Kent County Fund for the Arts Advisory Board.
