Kids has limited funding available for placing children and all costs for placing children in programs is fund-raised every year. Any help your organization can offer helps get more children the chance to experience positive recreation opportunities.
To become a partner, your organization can support P.R.O. Kids in one or more of the following ways:
Donate one or more registration spaces in your program on a recurring basis for P.R.O. Kids' use.
The spaces provided for P.R.O. Kids will be used to place children who qualify for assistance. A child is placed after completion of an application process that involves verification of the financial need of the family.
Provide a significant discount that is available for P.R.O. Kids to use for every child in a program
P.R.O Kids will pay for the cost of registration for a child in a program and be given a discount that is not normally available to the public. This way we can afford to place more children in that particular program.
