Target demographics: Military children aged 5 through 18 years of age.

Direct beneficiaries per year: by awarding 5,000 grants in 2013.

Geographic areas served: Nationwide

Mission:
Our Military Kids provides substantial support in the form of grants to the children of National Guard and Military Reserve personnel who are currently deployed overseas, as well as the children of Wounded Warriors in all components and branches of military service. The grants from Our Military Kids pay for fees associated with athletic, fine arts, and tutoring programs. Keeping the children engaged in activities of their choosing, helps to relieve the stress of separation from the military parent by providing a positive distraction, minimizing emotional destabilization, building self confidence and enabling academic achievement.
Results:
Through the generosity of its donors, Our Military Kids has provided nearly 50,000 grants totaling $20M to military children living in every state and U.S. territory.

Parents have reported through periodic surveys that 80% noticed an increase in stress or anxiety in their children during deployments and 89% indicated that participation in the activity positively impacted their children by reducing some/all of their symptoms of stress. In addition, 99% reported that participation significantly contributed to the overall well-being of the entire family.

For every dollar donated, 95 cents directly supports a child.
