School Supplies. Changing Lives.™
Kids In Need Foundation

Roseville, MN      Education


The mission of Kids In Need Foundation is to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need.

“When families have to choose between food and school supplies, your support enables me to reduce some of their worry. You allow me to provide tools to further success, encourage expression, and create an equal education for all my students.” – From a teacher in Houston, TX

When families struggle financially, school supplies just can’t be a priority. Some 16M American children cannot afford to school supplies, yet something as basic as paper and pencils can make all the difference in the world to their future success. Kids In Need Foundation runs four programs aimed at supporting these children and enabling teachers to make an impact in the classroom; National Network of Resource Centers with free teacher shopping, School Ready Supplies providing pre-assembled backpacks to school children, Teacher Supply Boxes providing a classroom’s worth of supplies to teachers, and Second Responder® for students affected by natural disasters to return to normalcy back in school.

Last year, the Kids In Need Foundation helped 200,000 teachers and 6.2 million students in some of the most challenged communities across the country. In our 23 years, we have distributed a billion dollars in supplies to kids who would otherwise go without them.

With your help, this project will raise $12,000 we can provide core school supplies such as
     • pencils
     • notebooks
     • paper
     • folders
     • glue
     • crayons

These supplies have a huge impact on measures of students’
     • Class preparedness
     • Class participation
     • Self-esteem
     • Interest in learning

Why We Like This Project

Every child should have the tools they need to get a good education. I think it's really amazing that Kids In Need Foundation works to make sure that students that need school supplies can get them.
