The $25,000 (net) raised beat our $20,000 goal for this year. Giving Tuesday is an annual global day of giving that this year raised $3.8 billion for non-profits like ours.

KidWorks’ total includes companies who matched employees’ individual donations.

Our generous Giving Tuesday 2022 supporters raised more funds for us than any previous Giving Tuesday, even in this uncertain economy.

All funds generated during Giving Tuesday are earmarked for our enrichment programs. Enough was contributed so that KidWorks can now fully fund all 2023 enrichment programs for our students in kindergarten through 12th grade.

Those enrichment programs include sports experiences provided by Nike, classes led by the Girl Scouts, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) events led by the Child Creativity Lab and workshops that include music, art, ballroom dancing, creative writing, yoga, software coding and more.

“KidWorks’ enrichment programs align perfectly with our overall focus on developing ‘the whole person’ in the students we serve,” says Daisy Rojas, our Program Enrichment Lead. “That includes academics, careers, spiritual development, personal development, leadership, fitness/health, community service and enrichment/creative expression.”
