White House

White House Recognizes National Kids' Chance Awareness Week

Thanks to Kids’ Chance of Maryland Executive Director Nancy Kellar and Secretary Rona Finkelstein, Kids’ Chance of America recently received acknowledgment from President Barack Obama on the importance of Kids’ Chance Awareness Week in early November.

“By fighting to make a difference in the lives of young people who experienced a parent’s work-related injury or death, you are helping put opportunity within reach for our Nation’s rising generation,” stated a letter from Obama. “This important work is helping America’s daughters and sons achieve their dreams and is integral to building a more vibrant, more prosperous future for all.”

Since 1996, we have provided college scholarships to the children of Maryland's injured workers.

20th anniversary logoEvery year, thousands of workers are disabled by on-the-job injuries and, tragically, about 60 workers in Maryland lose their lives every year. Kids’ Chance of Maryland provides an opportunity for the children of these workers to pursue their higher education, reach their goals, and fulfill their dreams for the future. We're part of a national organization; visit Kids' Chance of America here.

KC Partner & Sponsor Outreach graphic

The annual financial support of area businesses and individuals is crucial to ensuring that Kids' Chance of Maryland can continue to provide scholarship assistance to deserving students. For 2016, we have launched a new "Partner and Sponsor Outreach" fundraising program. This exciting new program consists of two financial support opportunities with high visibility recognition for our sponsors that we hope you will consider.

1. Annual Event Sponsorship Opportunity -- This consists of four different annual sponsorship levels for our year-long Kids' Chance events, each with a high visibility benefits package to recognize your organization as a supporting sponsor of Kids' Chance. Proceeds from our event sponsorships go into our general scholarship fund.

2. Annual Student Scholarship Opportunity -- This is a new sponsorship for organizations to donate and support a specific student and his or her college major or vocational program. We have three scholarship levels available for your consideration, each with high-profile benefits and recognition for your organization.

Thank you to our 2016 Sponsors!
