Our students had the opportunity to use the KINF funding to assist in their personal and professional growth. Using the support to buy business related items that improved their class, they were able to feel more passionate about school and look forward to coming to class. KINF changed the lives of over 60 students with their donations at Francis Lewis High School. On behalf of our students, Thank you!
I have received three grants totalling $1500. We have utilized funds to create literacy stations, writing stations, and math. Materials are plentiful and hands-on. My prek learners have benefited for three years as they transition to kindergarten.
KIN Foundation has HELPED my classrooms over the years tremendously! It is always a pleasure and delight to go to the center to 'shop'.....I appreciate the kind & warm welcome we get each time. I love KIN and wish them continued blessings because they have truly been a BLESSING to us!
Kids in Need Foundation funded an Eric Carle Festival for my Kindergarten students, enabling us to have the books, art supplies, and puzzles we needed to enjoy a day of fun celebrating one of our favorite authors! It was a day to remember.
My brother died recently, and my colleagues at the Kids In Need Foundation decided to make a donation of free school supplies to a school in the area where my brother lived in his memory to express their condolences to me. I was so warmed by it. My brother really believed in our mission and helped us promote our work whenever he could. I received a thank you today from the teacher whose students received the supplies. The children were so thrilled, and after she told them why they received the supplies, one of the little boys wanted to write my brother's name on all of his supplies, and a girl in the class said, "This is the best day of my life." That's a legacy of which my brother would have been proud.
Kids in Need Foundation has been a consistent help through the years for our students by giving us support, basic supplies, and more. They’ve allowed us unique and creative opportunities that went beyond pencils and notebooks. Their generosity provided the spark of enthusiasm which ignited the desire to learn within many students for whom it might not otherwise have occurred. They have enriched our resources and ability to engage the students in a way that has made us all truly in their debt. Thank you KINF for all you have helped us do for the kids in need! Terri C.
I have been fortunate enough to be the recipient of a few grants through the KINF. This organization has far exceeded my expectations and surprised me with Teacher of the Year for one of my grant submission ideas. My students thrived with the necessary supplies to publish their own hardcover books. It goes to show you that wonderful companies like KINF do exist and are totally supportive of enriching the lives of students and teachers. It's because of them that I'm able to bring new and innovative ideas into my classroom.
I am an elementary school teacher that teaches in an area where ninety-nine percent of our students receive free lunch. I think that your organization is providing an opportunity for my students that I would not be able to provide out of pocket for my students myself. I am excited about the project and the hands-on learning that my students will be engaged in.
Review from Guidestar
I was granted a project from the Kids in Need Foundation for the 2012-2013 school year. The project I chose to complete was one that I was able to use as a science fair project. Every time I brought out a new items my students looked like it was Christmas morning they were so excited. The Kids in Need Foundation gave me the oppurtunity to purchase items that many of my students had never experienced before. I know that my students had a very meaningful experience and took a lot away from the project and that was partly because of the Kids in Need Foundation. Thank you!
