Kids Helping Kids Since 1998

To date, 212+ grants totaling over $434,000+ have been awarded to 100+ different non-profit organizations since 1998. The "Young" Selection Committee is made up of approximately fourteen young adults whose ages range from twenty six to eleven.

The Board of Directors insist that the Selection Committee continue to acquire the opinion of youth in deciding what projects we will support as Abby did for our first grant in 1998.
