Many Ways to Give the Gift of Safety
Kidpower is a charitable organization. Our work is only possible because of the contributions of people like you who choose to give their resources of time, money, and relationships to help Kidpower help others.
There are many ways to make a difference. You can ask that birthday or holiday gifts go to Kidpower in your honor, buy books or workshops for others, organize services, provide the use of free space, ask your employer to contribute, recommend Kidpower to your friends as an important charity to support, donate your vehicle, donate stock, give in memory or honor of someone important to you, become an instructor, or volunteer to help with different projects. In the US, all financial donations are tax-deductible.
Scroll down to see some of the different ways you can help financially to support Kidpower’s work in creating safer kids, families, schools, and communities:
Every dollar you give helps Kidpower to cover the cost of providing our services. You can give to where it is needed most or designate your donation for a specific project:
- Donate on-line through our secure giving site on Network for Good.
- By mail – mail a check made out to Kidpower to P.O. Box 1212 Santa Cruz, CA 95061
Ask for Donations for Your Birthday, Holiday, or Wedding Gifts
Do you feel as if you have enough stuff? One creative way to help Kidpower is to ask family and friends to make donations to us in lieu of birthday, holiday, or wedding gifts. We will send them as well as you a personal acknowledgement by email or, if you prefer, by regular mail.
