Help "Ignite Potential" for the youth at KidWorks


On September 18th you have the opportunity to change the life of a KidWorks student forever!  Join KidWorks and 8 other OC Non-profits as we join forces to raise money for the youth of Orange County through Igniting Potential, a giving day led by the Orange County Community Foundation.  Funds raised by KidWorks will be used to support their College Success Initiative, a program that provides students the tools and resources needed to be successful in college.  

“I believe we can all join together to meet or achieve a goal of $25,000 over 24 hours to support our College Success Initiative™, where we walk alongside a student from ‘pre-K to B.A,’”’ says Lisa Gels, our Associate Director of Development.

Here’s what makes the opportunity to support Igniting Potential even more exciting: 

A generous KidWorks donor will match dollar-for-dollar every gift up to a cumulative total of $12,500

We need help spreading the word about Igniting Potential. Here’s how you can be part of this once-a-year event:

“KidWorks’ College Success Initiative is equipping students from kindergarten through college graduation to earn degrees and be fully prepared to enter the workforce,” says David Benavides, our Chief Executive Officer & Executive Director.  “Every dollar donated during the ‘Igniting Potential’ event is a long-term investment in Santa Ana’s youth.” 

David adds, “Fully 100% of our high school seniors graduate on time and 100% go on to a college or university. The monies raised for our College Success Initiative during the Igniting Potential event will assure that that this trend continues far into the future.”
