By partnering with teachers and students in under-resourced schools, the Kids In Need Foundation provides the support needed for teachers to teach and learners to learn. The Kids In Need Foundation Teacher Resource Center, operates as a free store for eligible teachers serving at area schools where at least 50% of students are enrolled in the federal free or reduced lunch program.
Kids In Need Foundation believes every child in America should have equal opportunity and access to a quality education.
What is unequivocally true: education is the gateway to empowering students to reach their full potential. Since 1995, Kids In Need Foundation (KINF) has provided the school supplies and learning resources needed to level the playing field, the only national nonprofit to focus its efforts on the country's most underserved schools, those with an enrollment of 70% or more participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).
We strategically mobilize our efforts and resources through our foundational programs-Supply A Teacher, Supply A Student, and Second Responder-and our National Network of Resource Centers, a collection of more than 40 well-established, mission-driven organizations across the country. Each year through our programs and Network, we serve an estimated 5 million students, 205,000 teachers, and provide over $70 million in product at no cost to schools or teachers.
