Help KidWorks youth get a big boost on Sept. 22 when we join forces with 17 other Orange County youth-oriented organizations for the third annual “Igniting Potential” giving day led by the Orange County Community Foundation.
“I invite everyone to join forces to help KidWorks reach our goal to raise $50,000 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.
Adds Lisa, “As in 2020, COVID-19 means that college and university-bound students are experiencing additional pressure once again in 2021 beyond the normal transition from high school to higher education. That’s why ‘Igniting Potential’ has added significance again this year.”
Here’s what makes the opportunity to support Igniting Potential even more exciting:
Our friends at Rainbow Sandals will match dollar-for-dollar every gift up to a cumulative total of $50,000.
Here’s how you can be part of this once-a-year event:
Share about supporting KidWorks through Igniting Potential with your friends and on social media leading up to September 22, and by emailing them this story.

“KidWorks’ College Success Initiativeis 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.”
