HOW MUCH SHOULD I DONATE?

How much should you give? The KIK Family Giving Ask is $1800 per child, but give anything you can ($25, $50, $800, or more)—whatever is best for your family. KIK recognizes that not just every dollar—but every family’s giving participation in any amount will help fill various, as well as unexpected, needs this year. If you’re able to give more than $1,800 per child, know that many families choose to do so, and KIK values everyone’s contribution to the KIK Annual Commitment at any point throughout the year.

Your donation gift is tax deductible and many employers will match donations which doubles your support! There are many payment options and if you don’t see one that is right for you, please let us know as we are more than happy to work with you.

 

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!
