We are a member of the CFC, or Combined Federal Campaign. This is a federally created program designed to promote and support workplace charitable donations and philanthrophy through an employee focused program. The CFC allows all federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. Pledges are made by federal, civilian, postal and military donors during a campaign season that runs from September 1st to December 15th. The CSC or Christian Service Charities represents faith-based charities in the CFC. Click here to learn more about CFC and find our member profile.

The work that we are able to do is accomplished through the generous donations of individuals, organizations, corporations and foundations. KIDS complies with the American Generally Accepted Accounting principles and the certified independent auditors are very thorough in their work each year. Our fundraising costs include all costs incurred to prepare, print and mail our newsletters and other materials we send out in an attempt to grow our ministry, along with a portion of our staff salaries for the time spent raising funds. From these charts you will see KIDS averages nearly 80% of your donations going directly to fund programs! We work very hard at helping your donations impact the children.

We also want to thank you for considering making a donation to help us bring hope to kids around the world! If you have any questions about our organization please contact us or call our office Monday – Friday between 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM CST.

Thank you and may God bless you and the kids around the world.
