About KTF

 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. 
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 $250 million in benefit premium costs.

The Trust insures over 2000 policy holders covering 4000 lives. 

The primary mission of the Kingston Trust Fund is to provide excellent health and welfare benefits to eligible members of the Kingston Teachers' Federation.


The Kingston Trust Fund envisions an expanding program of preventative care and of health and welfare benefits that are "ahead of the curve" and support the quality of life needs of members.


The Kingston Trust Fund values the quality of life of its members and recognizes the fact that a major health problem can be devastating to members, their families, and their colleagues.
