Since 1996, we have provided college scholarships to the children of Maryland's injured workers. Every 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.
Thanks to you, Kids' Chance of Maryland was able to help 15 deserving students in 2016. Without the support of our annual sponsors, donors and volunteers, this wouldn't have been possible. Every donation, whether small or large, helps a student fulfill their dreams for the future.
2017/18 Scholarship Application available May 1, 2017.

Kids’ Chance 2017 Fallen Workers Memorial Run/Walk Helps Raise Awareness, Scholarship Funds
The morning of Sunday, April 9th was brisk but sunny as more than 120 supporters, runners and walkers came out to support the Kids’ Chance of Maryland scholarship fund. This was the 5th annual 5k run and 1m walk. For the 2nd year, it was held at Goucher College in Towson.
After the run and walk there was a memorial reading of the names of the 54 Maryland workers who lost their lives in 2016. The memorial ceremony then ended with a trumpet player playing “Taps.” Check out our Flickr photo album to see photos from the 2017 Workers’ Memorial 5K Run & 1M Walk.

The annual financial support of area businesses and individuals is crucial to ensuring that Kids’ Chance of Maryland can continue to provide financial scholarship assistance to deserving students.
For 2017, we have streamlined our annual “Partner and Sponsor Outreach” fundraising program. To support our scholarship fund, we offer four annual sponsorship levels to select from. With each level, our sponsors will receive high visibility appreciation and benefits that appropriately recognize you, our valuable sponsor, as a true partner in supporting the mission of Kids’ Chance of Maryland, Inc.
Or if you prefer, you can also elect to have your sponsorship dollars be directed to a student(s) and his or her specific educational major or vocational trade. Contact Kids’ Chance of Maryland and we can discuss this sponsor preference with you.
Thank you to our 2016 Sponsors!
