In the Community

Kinnser is based in Austin, Texas. When most people think of Austin, they think of beautiful scenery, the vibrant and historic University of Texas, the fascinating bats beneath the Congress Avenue bridge, and the city’s status as “the live music capital of the world,” but Austin is also a mecca for technology and innovation. Kinnser has assembled a powerful team of some of the smartest, most creative thinkers anywhere. As Kinnser president and founder, Chris Hester has said, “Austin has been a great city for me to grow a business and a family.”

Generous charitable giving fits well in the values of Kinnser Software. We see ourselves as a vital part of multiple communities – our city, our nation, and our industry of healthcare. And we have eagerly supported programs that help meet the needs of all these communities.

Nursing scholarships

The Kinnser Scholars Program is a $225,000 fund that will award 90 recipients at Austin Community College with full scholarships for tuition, fees, books and nursing program expenses over the next five years. Students in the Licensed Vocational Nursing (LVN) and Associate Degree of Nursing (ADN) programs are eligible. The program is part of the Austin Community College Foundation.

Austin Children's Center

Kinnser Software was pleased to make a charitable donation of $150,000 to the Austin Children’s Shelter a safe haven for children, young adults and families who are in crisis. The organization provides critical services and quality care in a safe and nurturing environment. Through its long-term care and transitional living services, the Austin Children’s Shelter can extend its sustaining, positive effect on young lives.

Disabled American Veterans

Kinnser founder & president Christopher Hester made the decision to contribute $15,000 to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Charitable Service Trust, a national organization, based on his service in the Army and his desire to help veterans in need. The DAV Charitable Service Trust supports physical and psychological rehabilitation programs, aids and shelters homeless veterans, and meets the specific needs of veterans with disabilities.

    Kinnser has an incredible culture, a very friendly atmosphere, and a tremendous product. The company has a lot of room for growth in the future and is serving a great need of patients and caregivers. Cool office with music posters, free snacks etc.


    Limited maket means some restrictions on growth, but still a lot of headroom
