Why Giving Matters 

Growing up in poverty is one of the greatest threats to a child’s development and their ability to learn. It can contribute to poor health, behavioral, social and emotional problems.  The risks posed by economic hardship are greatest among children who experience poverty when they are young. With the right support, we can provide all children with the basic necessities and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

With the support of hundreds of volunteers, corporate partners, and individuals, we have clothed, fed, educated and enhanced the lives of thousands of children and their families throughout the United States.

Kids Matter needs your support. For every dollar we spend, 83% goes to support our programs and services. *based on audited financials.
