We are excited to announce that the Urban Foundation’s Kid City program has received a 2017 Bridging the Gap Award from the All Ways Up Foundation!
In addition to a $10,000 grant, Kid City has also been selected to participate in a crowd funding campaign in which the Always Up Foundation will match up to $10,000! That means your #GivingTuesday donation will be doubled by Always Up!. Help us reach our goal by December 31st, 2017!
How it works: make a donation HERE via All Ways Up crowdfunding campaign between November 27th, 2017 to December 31st, 2017. All Ways Up will present Kid City with a check for DOUBLE the amount donated. Our goal? $20,000!
Here’s how your donation helps:
*$1,000 provides a year of mentoring and college access support to five high school seniors!
*$500 builds youth leadership by sponsoring our annual Splash of LA festival!
*$400 provides a year of music instruction to Kid City music students and band members.
*$200 sends a college student to a three-day leadership retreat at Camp Colby.
*$150 pays for a six-week job training course for 16-22 year olds.
*$50 feeds thirty hungry high school students after school. Give them the energy they need to complete those college apps. Make it a monthly donation to keep them fed all year long.
*$25 sends a care package to a lonely college student. First generation college students need school supplies and personal essentials to get them through the semester.
Remember: donations must be made through this All Ways Up’s crowd-funding website. Call Anne or Alma at the Urban Foundation if you have any questions, at 213-749-0212. All Ways Up Foundation has been an incredible partner for the past year, starting with an unexpected grant of $5000 in 2016. Then, in 2017, the Foundation awarded nine Kid City high school seniors with scholarships: $2500 a year for four years, totaling $90,000! The goodness continued in the summer, when all nine seniors were invited to attend weekend bridge programs that prepared them for their first year of college. Help us show All Ways Up how much we appreciate this recognition by making a very generous offer today!
We just need 100 $100 donations to meet our goal!
