We are a small non-profit in Arizona and they applied for a small grant. They were so kind in listening to our story and going above and beyond to help us receive our grant. They do so much and are the most prompt and kindest organization I have dealt with when writing a grant. I write many grants and their application process was the easiest I have ever done!

Kars4Kids has been a wonderful funder for Don't Hide It, Flaunt It (DHIFI, Inc), a nonprofit organization working to advance acceptance, understanding, tolerance and mutual respect for a person's blatant or invisible difference. The ease of the grant application process and the rapid response were extremely helpful to our fundraising efforts, and the warm and personal engagement of the leadership is deeply appreciated. The donation from Kars4Kids will make an impact on our ability to promote active dialogue about difference in schools, community groups, and through online media, and we are grateful for the support!

I run a small non-profit and we applied for a grant through Kars4Kids. They were prompt in response, communicative throughout the process of awarding the grant, and very helpful. It was obvious that we weren't just another thing for them to do, but that they actually cared about our mission and work and wanted to be supportive. Great experience!

Kars4Kids, Inc. is a great charity to work with. Staff are professional and respond quickly to all inquiries. Our Library Foundation applied for a grant for literacy and Kars4Kids awarded us $1,000 to help further our mission! We are looking forward to working with this non-profit in the future!

Kars4kids is one of the best organizations we have dealt with during our non-profit tenure (2001 to present). Extremely responsive and definitely reliable. Wendy Kirwan is THE greatest "go to person" . Their organizational purpose is for the prosperity of youth and their accountability. Kids WORLDWYD greatly appreciates their donation of 100 basketballs!!! Incredible!! We have a very positive outlook with the alliance of kars4kds!

As the CEO of a nonprofit myself, I greatly appreciate the support from Kars4Kids, and the friendlessness of their staff. I couldn't be happier with my interaction with them!

As the leader of a small non-profit organization called Bench Mark Program in Lancaster, PA, I look up to non-profit leaders like Kars4Kids. We are honored to have received their support that helped us to further our own mission and vision. They were quick to see our potential for continued impact in our community, and went the extra mile by providing us the platform to spread the word about our work. My organization is stronger for the connection and friendship that we have established with Kars4Kids!

I was privileged to visit Kars4Kid's summer camp with my family. The staff was so helpful and friendly. I didn't know where anything was, but had no trouble finding anything as there was always someone to ask. My family and I were amazed at the concern the staff showed to everyone they passed.

Having seen both the front and back end of the organization there is nothing as rewarding when you see the results of all the hard work that goes into it. Watching a smile break out on a child's face while enjoying a sporting activity at a summer camp or an underprivileged child gain confidence with positive reinforcement from a caring mentor, makes it all worth it. Kars4kids charity makes a solid impact on the kids, these guys deserve a pat on the back.

I had the privilege of spending a weekend at their summer camp and saw first-hand the great work of the organization. Besides for being such a beautiful campus, the activities were truly catered to the children's overall well-being. The counselors and staff were all so devoted. It's amazing to see such a unique organization truly dedicated towards it's mission.

Our Neighborhood Association, Camp Curtain Community Neighbors United of Harrisburg PA, received 300 backpacks from Kars4Kids.org and their organization was wonderfull to work with. Wendy at Kars4Kids made everything a breeze!!! They provided and paid to ship the backpacks to us, it took only one day to get the shipment, the children in Uptown Neighborhood of Harrisburg were so excited to have brand new backpacks! We are so happy to have an organization that helped our corner of the world, making life better for struggling children and neighborhoods. We look forward to working with them again!!

I have been involved with K4K for 12 years and am in awe of the organization! The volunteers are so selfless and give hours of their time to help others. I have personally seen hundreds of children and their families benifit from the summer camps, year round mentorship, and school supply giveaways. Many of the children are now married and leading successful lives thanks to the support they received from their K4K mentors. An amazing and worthy organization!
