What is the Kids Co. Virtual BBQ?
The Virtual BBQ is an online event designed to activate our community to raise money for the Kids Co. Scholarship Fund. By the end of FY’13 we anticipate awarding an astounding total of $405,000, which will fund over 300 scholarships to families who need help.
How does it work?
Each Kids Co. center has a robust team of volunteers whose mission is to reach out to their friends via email, social media, and word of mouth to raise money for the Scholarship Fund. Kids Co. has a suggested goal of $85 per volunteer but many people aim higher! Every $300 raised sends a kid to one of Kids Co.’s 11 centers for a whole month. The Virtual BBQ’s overall goal is $15,000, which will fund 50 scholarships for families who need financial assistance.
Where does my money go?
All donations go to the Kids Co. Scholarship Fund, which awards childcare to families who are experiencing financial strife and need a helping hand. Of the 1,500 children enrolled in one of Kids Co.’s 11 centers, 20-25% receive tuition assistance in order to attend; 70% of these awards go to single-parent households.
Why participate?
The welfare of our children is the foundation of a healthy community. The majority of working families with young children need childcare, yet many households simply cannot afford the cost. Childcare costs are second only to housing. The Kids Co. Scholarship Fund makes it possible for families on stretched budgets to attend a high quality childcare program. Your participation removes financial barriers so all kids have access to safe, fun, and educational programs.
How do I know my donation will make a difference?
Soon after you make your donation you’ll receive a story and photo about a family whose lives you have changed!

Help a kid go to childcare!

Hi Everyone,

This summer we are Kids Co. kids and are spending time here learning to geocache and make movies. Today we even got to go to the movie PLANES. It’s been a lot of fun and we’re learning a lot of cool stuff. We’re even making new friends from new neighborhoods!

We’re happy but what makes us sad is a lot of other kids can’t attend camps or childcare like Kids Co. Mom tells us it’s because childcare is too expensive for a lot of families. She says it’s tough for her too but, unless she has us someplace safe, she can’t go to work. That’s nuts.

At Kids Co., no child is turned away. They do this because of the Kids Co. Scholarship Fund. We’re helping raise money to support kids like us! Kids whose moms and dads work.

Please be a kids friend and make a donation of $10 (or more or less) today.

This is our first time fundraising together and we want to do good!
