The Kids In Need Foundation operates four key programs to help facilitate our efforts so that all students have access to quality school supplies to learn and succeed. In 2016 we supported 5.4 million kids and more than 150,000 teachers across the country through these initiatives.

We partner with 40 locations across the country to help distribute much needed school supplies to kids who would otherwise go without.

Studies show that teachers spend an average of $500 per year of their own money to help kids whose families just can’t afford the required materials. Our Teacher Supply Boxes will provide successful applicants with two boxes containing roughly $500 in the most essential school supplies — from notebooks and markers to pens and glue.
