This is how the Kids In Need Foundation operates: through a national network of Resource Centers, teachers can get free supplies for their students who are in need. We do not donate supplies directly to other organizations or families. The supplies must be acquired through teachers who have shopping privileges at the Resource Centers. All supplies donated to us by manufacturers and retailers go immediately to the Resource Centers. We do not have a warehouse from which we can draw supplies, so we do not donate supplies directly to other organizations, schools, families, or individuals.

“To be able to say you are part of a national network means a lot when you are talking to local funders. Invariably they want to know if there are other similar centers. Sharing in donations from trade shows and from vendors is, of course, a major part of our ability to provide students and teachers with basic school supplies. The ability to exchange ideas in both a formal and informal manner is invaluable. One idea we picked up at the Summit last year saved us over $4,000 in printing costs this year.”
