As a nonprofit organization, Kidpower exists because of the generosity of many different individuals, companies, and foundations – and, thanks to their help, Kidpower’s impact continues to grow.
In order to fund our services, we rely on individual donations, foundations and corporate grants, and income from our workshops and publications to provide services and educational materials that bring vital skills for safety and success to people of all ages and abilities around the world. Very little of our income comes from government sources.
Increasing our individual support is essential in increasing Kidpower’s sustainability for the long run and expanding our reach, so that we can continue to provide effective child protection, positive communication, and personal safety skills to protect people of all ages and abilities from bullying, violence, and abuse by empowering them with awareness, action, and skills.
Collectively, Kidpower’s international headquarters and our 25 local centers and offices around the world earned more than $1.18 million in financial income in the 2013-2014 Fiscal Year.
In addition, our operating picture is not complete without acknowledging the enormous amount of in-kind support – nearly half a million dollars (US) worth of donated professional services, space and materials – that have enabled us to reach so many people with such a small financial budget.
As you can see, Kidpower is fueled by personal passion on so many levels. Please consider making a donation today – and if you can, making a recurring monthly donation to help support Kidpower’s growth and ability to bring services, publications and support to teach skills that can save lives.
