PROGRAMS FOR KIDS
Kids for Kids Fund
The Kids for Kids Fund program offers a dynamic civic experience for 3rd-5th graders to develop their philanthropic identity and capacity. The Kids for Kids Fund is run through schools, camps, and other community programs.
During this experiential journey, we focus on building an empathetic connection to the needs of others, exploring compassionate solutions to issues facing our communities, and putting our philanthropic capacities into practice. The sessions range from exploring the rights of all children to perspective-taking about different social issues, to learning about great local solutions in their community. The program culminates in each school group determining how to allocate $1,000. Past grantees of the $1000 grant have included Best Kids, Tracy's Kids, Nourish Now, Children's Homeless Playtime Project, Only Make Believe, Project Create, Great and Small, Bright Beginnings, The Dwelling Place, KEEN DC, DC Diaper Bank, Kids in Need Distributors, and many more.
We are currently piloting complementary programming for 2nd/3rd and 5th/6th graders.
