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.
Come join us this Friday at 5:30pm – Event Sign Up

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:
