Kidpower Partners: We Appreciate Your Support!
Kidpower’s partners include schools, businesses, foundations, government agencies, and individuals who care about safety for their communities and loved ones.
Featured Partnership: Wells Fargo Foundation
In 1989, the 6.9 Loma Prieta earthquake disrupted the first public Kidpower workshop in Watsonville. The building we had been teaching in collapsed – and the energy and resources of our community went to earthquake relief for many years – making this a challenging time to start a nonprofit!
In addition to providing many contributions to help communities rebuild, the Wells Fargo Foundation gave $5,000 grants to help nonprofits that had been harmed by the earthquake. This support was essential in Kidpower’s first year, making it possible for our new nonprofit to keep going despite the huge setbacks resulting from this disaster.
Many times over the 25 years since then, Wells Fargo has generously funded important projects to support Kidpower’s work in schools, helping keep preschool and elementary school children safe from bullying, violence, and abuse through empowering teachers, parents, and children with awareness, knowledge, and skills.
This fall, Kidpower was also honored to receive a surprise additional $1,000 donation for general support at a breakfast honoring Santa Cruz nonprofits. We deeply appreciate Wells Fargo Foundation’s commitment to healthy, caring, safe communities!
MANY THANKS to our hundreds of donors and volunteers. Your generosity is making a big difference in our ability to help others.
