Looking ahead
Help us meet our *match*  
KBIA friends launch matching program for scholarships  
Scholarships are key to the mission of KBIA: to provide safe, supportive and exciting Summers of Discovery for children and their families, among others.
As a fitting finale to our 100th Capital Campaign, we have launched a matching program for our endowment fund that helps us support scholarships. From now until the end of summer, every new $2 given to KBIA will be matched by $1, generously funded by friends of KBIA. This anonymous group has donated $41,667 (WOW!), so we have the potential to collectively raise $125,000 – all to help kids in this community for many, many Summers of Discovery to come.
Pledges can be made now and paid by the end of the calendar year. KBIA’s endowment fund is now managed by a professional firm under the direction of the Board of Directors’ Endowment Committee, and this year KBIA will offer $32,000 in scholarships to local children.
We will be asking all members, supporters and friends of KBIA to dig deep and support the 100th Capital Campaign in its final year so we can ensure the opportunity is available to all children for many summers to come.
