Where does the money go?
Kids 4 Kids offers childhood cancer survivors grants to be used for their continuing education. Subject to the income generated from fundraisers, donations and grants, K4K strives to disburse $3,000 to $5000 annually, and we are constantly working towards the ability to offer more scholarships to our many successful applicants.
Eligibility for scholarships is limited to survivors of childhood cancer who are pursuing a formal education. Applicants must have been diagnosed with cancer before their 18th birthday and must be enrolled (or accepted for enrollment) in an educational institution, working towards a recognized degree. Candidates are selected based on a number of potential factors including the candidate’s cancer history, experience, outlook, educational history and performance, and life aspirations as reflected in their application.
Currently, the grants are in the form of cash “scholarships” in the range of $1,000 to $2,000 each. The organization’s directors anticipate that all of K4K’s income, net of what is anticipated to be limited operating expenses, will be used for educational grants or plowed directly back into additional fundraising activities.
