Dear Kids’ Chance,
I am writing to thank you for your generous Kids’ Chance of Illinois Scholarship. It means a great deal to me that my sister and I were selected as recipients of your scholarship. Thanks to your generosity, pursuing my academic goals and future has become much more attainable, and for that you have my sincerest thanks.
I am a Geology major with a minor in Broadcast Meteorology. I’m pursuing my goal of becoming a meteorologist and weatherman at Eastern Illinois University. My twin sister is also pursuing her dream at her college in Oklahoma, and the financial strain of supporting us has fallen to our family. By supporting not just myself, but both of us, it is double the blessing for my entire household.
By awarding Kid’s Chance of Illinois Scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden and allowed me to pursue my dream without fear or distraction. Your generosity is absolutely inspiring, and I hope to be able to give to others the way you’ve given to me and my family. Thank you, and I hope someday soon I’ll be able to pay the kindness you’ve shown me forward to another.
This wonderful group of supporters has donated several gifts for a raffle that will be held at this event to raise money for our kids! Register Today!

The goal of this week is to increase visibility through outreach events and social media campaigns in order to spread the word about Kids’ Chance scholarship opportunities.
There are currently 39 Kids’ Chance state organizations with several others in development. Collectively, Kids’ Chance organizations have awarded over 6,000 scholarships across the country, totaling over $18,000,000. In 2016-2017 alone, we awarded 497 individual scholarships nationally, with an average of $4,400 per student.
We are kicking off Awareness Week 2017 this Friday with a Paint Party!
Awareness Week is one of the best times to do a quick fundraiser to help our IL chapter.

What happens when a child loses a parent to a work-related fatality? How do families cope with a dramatic decrease in income because Mom or Dad cannot return to work due to an injury? In many cases, pursuing higher education seems unattainable. No student should be denied the opportunity to pursue an education due to lack of finances.
Thank you to all of our partners who participated in our “Change to Change Kids Lives” campaign in July! Our goal was to raise money and promote awareness within our community by placing banks at different companies and you all agreed to help. Special shout out to our gracious contributors:
