Kaitlyn's Story graphic

Since 1996, we have provided college scholarships to the children of Maryland's injured workers.

20th anniversary logoEvery year, thousands of workers are disabled by on-the-job injuries. Tragically, on average, about 60 workers in Maryland lose their lives every year. It’s the families and, in particular, the children who are many times forgotten when these losses occur. Kids’ Chance of Maryland provides an opportunity for these children to pursue their education, reach their goals, and fulfill their dreams for the future. We're part of a national organization; visit Kids' Chance of America here.

KC Partner & Sponsor Outreach graphic

The annual financial support of area businesses and individuals is crucial to ensuring that Kids' Chance of Maryland can continue to provide scholarship assistance to deserving students. For 2016, we have launched a new "Partner and Sponsor Outreach" fundraising program. This exciting new program consists of two financial support opportunities with high visibility recognition for our sponsors that we hope you will consider.

1. Annual Event Sponsorship Opportunity -- This consists of four different annual sponsorship levels for our year-long Kids' Chance events, each with a high visibility benefits package to recognize your organization as a supporting sponsor of Kids' Chance. Proceeds from our event sponsorships go into our general scholarship fund.

2. Annual Student Scholarship Opportunity -- This is a new sponsorship for organizations to donate and support a specific student and his or her college major or vocational program. We have three scholarship levels available for your consideration, each with high-profile benefits and recognition for your organization.

Manic Monday new

National Kids' Chance Awareness Week a Success in Maryland

National Kids' Chance Awareness Week, Nov. 2-6, 2015, was launched in Maryland on Monday, Nov. 2 with an early morning "Manic Monday" appearance on local TV!

Every Monday morning, the local Baltimore TV station WJZ-TV, Channel 13, invites local charitable groups to tell their story and sing the 1980's classic Bangles' tune, "Manic Monday," with some customized lyrics.

It was a beautiful fall morning down by the Baltimore harbor for the more than 30 Kids' Chance supporters who turned out. Special thanks to Rona Finkelstein, Kids' Chance of Maryland Secretary, for securing the group's TV appearance and coordinating rehearsal efforts!

In the photo above, Kids' Chance of Maryland President Tom Phelan explains to WJZ's Ron Matz that Nov. 2-6, 2015 was proclaimed Kids' Chance Awareness Week in Maryland as well by Governor Larry Hogan.
