Nonprofit Support

Kids In Need Foundation’s (KINF) focus is providing supplies directly to students and teachers in under-resourced areas, however, we are occasionally able to accommodate donation requests as our inventory allows. If you could answer the following questions, we will keep your information on file in case an opportunity in your area arises. 

Guidelines for Support


You must be a registered 501(c)(3) organization.


Any nonprofit organization we support must align with our mission, serving schools and students who meet our eligibility guidelines.


Specific attention will be paid to the area surrounding our headquarters in Roseville, Minn. and communities without access to a member of our National Network of Resource Centers.


KINF provides material support by way of essential school supplies and learning resources and is unable to provide financial support. 

What We Expect From You

As our primary focus remains on working directly with schools and teachers, please allow plenty of time for us to process and fulfill requests

Organizations within the seven-county Twin Cities metro area will be accountable for picking up their materials at our warehouse in Roseville. All recipients based outside of the metro will have materials shipped to them at the expense of the recipient.
