Corporate Partnerships with Impact
Kids In Need Foundation is proud to partner with innovative and committed companies to create equitable learning spaces. Through the distribution of supplies and resources, Kids In Need Foundation and its partners empower teachers and students in underserved schools.
Promoting equity in schools is an invaluable social investment that gives children a reliable foundation and fosters a broader perspective.
It is crucial to champion the inherent dignity of children and the formative experiences they have throughout their education. School supplies and resources matter because they represent belonging and ownership of a student's education.
For teachers facing rooms full of students struggling to break the cycle of poverty, supplies level the playing field so all students are prepared to learn when the bell rings.
A quality education equips students with knowledge about themselves and the world around them and ultimately empowers them to make wise decisions for their futures.
Why It Matters
Kids In Need Foundation is the only national nonprofit focusing on the nation's most under-resourced schools: those where 70 percent or more of the enrolled students are eligible for free or reduced-cost meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). This data is compiled, using metrics to determine whether children are at risk for food insecurity, and annually reported to the public by the managing entities in each state. Nationally, schools with high NSLP enrollment receive less funding annually, are chronically under-resourced, and disproportionately serve students of color.
Kids In Need Foundation creates equitable learning spaces through the distribution of supplies and resources, empowering teachers and students in under-resourced schools. A national organization, Kids In Need Foundation has coast-to-coast reach and a model of working with local partners. This strategy includes taking a closer look at community dynamics to efficiently identify, connect with, and serve the individual schools, teachers, and students who will benefit most from our programs.
