Founded in 2003, the Kids Helping Kids Foundation was established with the goal of encouraging philanthropy in youth. After a fundraising experience with a group of children in early 2003, it became apparent that there was a tremendous benefit to the youth involved. Not only did the fundraising experience raise self esteem and give a positive feeling about their actions, it also left them with a sense that they could and wanted to do more for others, thus the root of philanthropy were generated.
The Kids Helping Kids Foundation is a registered charitable foundation that matches funds raised by youth to benefit other charitable children’s charities. What better way to encourage philanthropy than by doubling their efforts?
Philanthropic minded youth of today become philanthropic adults of tomorrow.
