Cla-Val; Kling Family Foundation

Mrs. Kling’s entire life has been one of philanthropic adventure supporting over 100 organizations and charities in the arts and education. She and her late husband, Arllyn, both worked for her father’s company, Cla-Val. Her father invented the hydraulic control system and held 25 patents. The Kling’s have made philanthropy a family affair with a portion of the company’s profits funding the Kling Family Foundation. This family Foundation generously gives back to the community, including support of one of Northwood’s educational affiliations in Cerritos, CA. Mrs. Kling has been generously giving to the arts, education and for pro bono medical support.
