1100+ STUDENTS SERVED
Family Giving donations help support a large number of educational programs, safety and wellness plans as well as enrichment programs at Bacich and Kent in their re-imagined and creative forms. Here are just a few of the things we can help make happen together:
88% OF ANNUAL COMMITMENT DOLLARS
Family Giving, formerly Annual Giving, is the largest portion of the $1M Annual Commitment to our schools. It is separate from Spring Auction and Family Fun Day fundraising and from Partners in Education business donations, which together account for 12% of fundraising dollars. Our students count on as many families as possible to donate to our schools through Family Giving.
The Family Giving Ask is $1800 per child, but, please, give anything you can ($25, $50, $800, or more)—whatever is best for your family. Family Giving donations are tax deductible and some companies offer matching programs. Learn more about what KIK funds and how to donate.
INCREASE YOUR NEW DONATION WITH MATCHING PROGRAMS
Is your family a first-time Kindergarten family? Or perhaps your family is new to the district with children grades 1-8 or is considering giving to KIK for the first time?
There are two exciting matching programs to increase your Family Giving donation! KIK is grateful to Woodlands Market and an Anonymous Donor for making these generous matching programs available to our community:
|Woodlands Kindergarten Challenge||$25,000 New Donor Challenge
(Families w/ Students Grades 1-8)
|Woodlands Market will give $400!
For every new Kindergarten Family who donates the Family Giving Ask of $1800 per student, Woodlands will donate an additional $400 to KIK.
|Double Your Donation!
Whether $25 or $2,500 (or more or less), every first-time Family Giving donation will be matched 100%! If you’re giving to KIK for the first time, any amount you donate will be doubled until $25,000 in New Donor giving has been matched.
How should you designate your participation when donating?
Simply make a note when sending your donation in, otherwise, all donations are cross-checked for eligibility when received.
Thank you for taking the challenge!
Thank you for your generosity and support!
