The Kingston Trust Fund began in 1997 as the primary health provider of Medical benefits for members of the Kingston Teachers' Federation. In 2007, Dental benefits and Long Term Care insurance were added and life insurance was added in 2009.
Since its inception, when compared to the Blue Cross plan it replaced and the extra benefits it provides, the Trust has saved the Kingston Schools over $160 million in premium costs.
The Trust insures over 1800 policy holders covering over 4000 lives.
The Kingston Trust Fund operates with four (4) committees: Audit, Compensation, Planning, and Oversight. Each committee consists of Three (3) Trustees who are appointed annually by the Chairperson. The Executive Director is an ex-officio member of all committees. Committees report to the Board of Trustees.
There are seven (7) Trustees who, according to the Declaration of Trust, are appointed by the President of the Kingston Teachers' Federation to terms of two (2) years. The Trustees meet no less than four (4) times per plan year.
