Kids' Chance of America 2022 Annual Impact Report

50 States Strong

Kids' Chance of America 2022 Annual Impact Report

“Without the community, without the organization, without all the help, and supporters, and everything, there’s no way I’d be in this position today. I couldn’t tell you where I’d be. I couldn’t tell you what our family situation would be like.”

Kids’ Chance of NC Scholarship Recipient

Every year at the Kids’ Chance National Conference, our founder, Bob Clyatt, tells his story. He shares how he came to form the first Kids’ Chance in Georgia and what he sees as the future of the Kids’ Chance mission. His vision has always been to have a Kids’ Chance organization in every state.

It is my distinct privilege to say that we’ve achieved this dream. With the forming of Kids’ Chance of Wyoming, we have a presence in all 50 states.

Now we look forward to our next chapter. It’s not enough to have a presence in each state; we need to ensure each and every state can consistently fulfill its mission and ultimately reach every eligible kid.

In addition, over $350,000 was spent in direct support of our state organizations, including professional counsel in scholarship practices and non-profit best practices, the national conference, the scholarship platform Kaleidoscope, Planning for the Future, our educational programs such as webinars and roundtables, marketing collateral, our awareness week activities, scholarship development, our state accelerator program, and emergency grants.
