Events - Kids in Need Foundation


We hold two annual events that celebrate our mission of providing students with free school supplies. Click the links below to learn more.


Kids In Need Foundation Gala Fundraiser

Each year our donors, partners, volunteers, teachers, and supporters come together for one night to celebrate our mission and the work we do. The event serves as our biggest and most exciting fundraiser of the year. All proceeds from the gala benefit the 6.2 million children and 180,000 teachers that we help to support annually.

National Network Summit

Each summer groups and individuals who provide free school supplies to children in need gather for this three-day summit to exchange best practices, solve problems, brag a little bit, and gain new insight into the challenges of operating a store.

When families struggle financially, school supplies just can't be a priority. In 2017, we directly supported 6.2 million kids with new supplies.
