The season for giving and gratitude is upon us! A time of year when we are asked to look outward, to our community, and give what we can. Here at KBIA, we are in a constant state of gratefulness to our donors, members, volunteers, and staff who keep summers alive for the kids of KBIA. 
 
On this day - November 27th - we have been called to action...#GivingTuesday is a day we are asked to give in whatever capacity we are able, to a cause, an organization, to a greater good.  We hope you consider KBIA on this day.
 
 
 
GIVING TUESDAY
 
SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Every child deserves a summer full of learning, mentors, and friends.  But not every child has the means.  Each year we have traditionally offered 20 to 25 children the opportunity to experience a KBIA summer -- free of charge and discreetly issued. We are able to set the number of scholarships based directly on the amount of money donated specifically to scholarships. Donating to our scholarship fund is donating an invaluable experience to a child who will forever cherish their time spent at KBIA.
 
    
 
FACILITIES FUND

Updating and maintaining KBIA facilities is necessary to keep our campus and programs running smoothly.  Your donation to the facilities fund will support some upcoming off-season projects -- last year we updated new siding and trim to the Smith House and repaired the sea wall along the cove.    
 
GENERAL FUND

Let us decide! This donation fund can be accessed for a multitude of projects for the benefit of KBIA summer enrichment activities.
 
All donations help support a place that lets children be children and lets them explore the vast and rugged beauty of the Coast of Maine in summer, while building knowledge, leadership, and respect for themselves, others and their world. 
 
For more information on donating toward the cause this #GivingTuesday, visit the "How to Donate" page on our website.
