Message from the President
Dear Kids’ Chance Friends and Supporters:
Let me take this opportunity to extend my gratitude for your contributions on behalf of the students we serve. Since our inception in 1997, Kids’ Chance of Pennsylvania has provided over 688 scholarships for a cumulative total of $1,529,000. Scholarships for the 2015-2016 school year were awarded to 56 students, totaling $184,000. None of this would be possible without your continued support and commitment to our kids!
While we have made significant progress, there is more work to be done. Kids’ Chance of Pennsylvania has set some lofty goals for 2016:
- Increase the number of scholarship applicants
- Continue to grow our "Planning for College" program
- Build our Kids’ Chance Cares (care package) program
- Cultivate the larger Kids’ Chance community in support of scholarships for our students
- Celebrate our successes and recognize our supporters with annual events and gatherings
We continue to be amazed by the potential we see in our student scholarship recipients. They are the country’s future, and without your help, many might not have had the opportunity to the education needed to succeed.
Thank you again for of your contributions. I hope to see you at some of our upcoming events including the 11th Annual Golf Outing on May 15, 2016 at the Hershey Country Club, as well as our walk/runs this fall.
