Each year, we engage our network of educators to give us an accurate picture of our impact in their underserved communities. The resulting impact report helps us understand their current needs, the efficacy of our work, and the ways we can serve them better in the coming year.
Our 2019 Impact Report presents the responses of nearly 9,000 teachers across the United States and highlights the growing need for both traditional supplies and technology in today’s classrooms.
Our programs invite individuals, organizations, and whole communities to join the cause.
Working together adds up fast. Each year, on average, The Kids In Need Foundation helps nearly 200,000 teachers and more than 5 million students in some of the most under-resourced communities across the country.
