Over its long history, KidsPeace has earned a national reputation for providing a level of care that meets high standards of quality and effectiveness.  To do this requires significant financial resources.  

 

Funding by government agencies and private insurers pays for most of our program costs, but not all.  As a nonprofit organization, KidsPeace relies on a strong base of support from philanthropic donors to help us bridge the gap to provide the exceptional care our clients need and deserve.

 

To improve and expand our ongoing philanthropic support, KidsPeace’s Board of Directors in 2017 created the KidsPeace Foundation.  The Foundation’s purpose is to strengthen our connection to donors and potential donors, improve our management of donated resources, cultivate and secure major gifts to support our various programs in a sustainable manner, and oversee the work of the KidsPeace Boards of Associates in their particular support of our local offices.

The Foundation’s mission states:

We seek to foster enduring and trusting relationships with donors to secure resources to assist KidsPeace in transforming the lives of children, youth and adults in need of hope, help and healing, regardless of their financial means.
