Welcome to the Kids' Chance Portal on WorkersCompensation.com
Kids' Chance is the "Designated Charitable Endeavor" for WorkersCompensation.com.
Kids' Chance state organizations provide scholarships to children of workers who have been seriously or fatally injured on the job.
Today, there's a Kids' Chance presence in 48 states and collectively, Kids' Chance organizations have awarded more than 8,000 scholarships totaling over $27 million dollars.
Kids' Chance supporters are a unique coalition of groups within the workers' compensation system, including:
Labor, plaintiff and defense attorneys
Vendors and other supportive businesses
Kids' Chance envisions a time when all children affected by a parent's work related injury or death can pursue their educational dreams without financial burden. Their guiding principle remains #MoreMoneyforMoreKids.
There are 3 main ways you can help achieve that goal:
Join the Kids' Chance Community
Kids' Chance of America builds the national brand and guides member organizations on best practices in how to operate a nonprofit organization. It's the state organizations that award the scholarships. Visit the Kids' Chance of America website to find and engage with your state.
Identify Eligible Applicants
The Planning for the Future initiative is designed to identify potential scholarship applicants, especially those who are not yet of college age. Kids' Chance of America collects and maintains their contact information so they can connect these students to the appropriate Kids' Chance state organization to begin the scholarship application process. If you know someone who may be eligible for a scholarship, please submit their information today.
Spread the Word
There are many ways to share the Kids' Chance mission from serving as a volunteer to spreading the word through social media. We encourage you to follow, like and share the content released from Kids' Chance of America as well as from the state organizations. Follow #KidsChance for the latest.
"Your scholarship has not only given me an incredible push forward, but it has also inspired me to one day donate to Kids' Chance so I can help another child like me - hoping that they will also pay it forward. I can't thank you enough for your generosity and I hope that one-day I can change the world in a positive way, just as you have done with my world."
