For Kids Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Mission: For Kids Foundation fills in the gaps created by other programs to provide one-time funding for the urgent, unmet needs of Northern Nevada children (from birth to age 21) when there is no other known resource available.
Vision: Provide or align resources to help every child thrive.
The Foundation serves as a safety net for children who have “fallen through the cracks” of existing agencies and charitable organizations. Through a network of community service providers and contacts, we look for those children who have a genuine need, but do not qualify for assistance from other resources. We help those kids no one else does.
For example, we have provided the funding for medical consultations, psychological counseling, prescriptions, and eyeglasses. We have funded dental care, computers, summer school, and hearing tests.
