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 more than 6 million children and nearlly 200,000 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 2018, we directly supported more than 6 million students with new supplies.

    COVID-19 and how you can help

    The needs of the students we serve haven’t disappeared because their schools have closed, in fact, they’ve gotten more severe. Right now, millions of children across the U.S. are lacking the basic tools they need to continue their education at home.

    Join us today, and your contribution will help supply and ship the most crucial distance learning items out to our students. No one should be left behind when it comes to their education.
