Make a Donation to Our Auction & Raffle
Thirty years ago Kids Co. opened our first child care center in Seattle – a child care born with a laser sharp vision to serve all children, no matter their family’s economic circumstance. From day one we never turned a child away from our services if cost was a barrier. This has always been accomplished through our Kids Co. Scholarship Fund.
Today we have 14 Puget Sound based centers providing before and after school care, preschool, summer day camp, and after school clubs for over 1,400 kids annually. All the while, holding true to our initial promise, all children are welcome no matter what their family’s income.
Studies show that in order to afford care, the minimum household income should be about $195,000 for one preschooler. That’s a sticker shock for most anyone but for low-income family’s it’s a solid roadblock. Therefore, we provide up to $500,000 in tuition assistance scholarships every year. But we can’t do it without you!
Here’s how you can help – Contribute to our Gala Auction!
To celebrate our 30th Anniversary—as well as support the scholarship fund—we’re hosting a Gala. No gala is complete without amazing auction items and that’s why I’m reaching out to you.
I’m positive a donated item or gift card from you would be a huge hit with our crowd. Popular items include travel packages, events (think theater or sports), extravagant dinners, gift baskets, and gift cards. If you have questions or would like donation suggestions please contact Amanda Bakke at 206-691-8743 / email.
We promise, all auction proceeds—100%—will go toward the Kids Co. Scholarship Fund to help families, who are experiencing rough times, enroll their children in high-quality care. This ensures that parents can go to work knowing their kids are in safe and nurturing hands.
Thank you for considering this request. I promise your gift will make a positive difference in a kid’s life.
With a warm heart,
Susan R. Brown
President, CEO, Founder, and Kids Co. Mom
