About Courage Kenny Cards

Courage Kenny Cards are high quality holiday cards featuring original, exclusive and museum-quality artwork, many by artists with disabilities. Proceeds from the sale of these cards help people with disabilities live, work and play to their full potential.

The first Courage Card, sent in 1958, was a two-color pencil drawing. Today, hundreds of artists from around the world submit work to our annual art search. Artists of all abilities are invited to submit designs for the next holiday card collection. For more information and the art search guidelines please visit Become an Artist

Thousands of Courage Kenny Cards are sent each year by businesses, organizations, and individuals. To date, Courage Kenny Cards has raised more than $6 million. We're proud of the work we do, and we're proud of our customers - the caring and generous people who choose to send our cards to their clients, colleagues, family members, and friends.

CUSTOMIZABLE CARDS are available here on our website and through our catalog.

BOXED CARDS are available at our community retail partners who generously return 100% of the proceeds: Lunds & Byerly's and Bachman's.

Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute partners with and inspires people to maximize their health and abilities to achieve lives of purpose and potential by providing a full continuum of exceptional rehabilitative services. Courage Center which started in 1928 and Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute which opened in 1942 were both founded to bridge a gap in services for people with disabilities.

While our name has changed, our guiding value remains the same. Your purchase helps people with disabilities live work and play to their full potential.
