The Kids In NeeD (KIND) Fund



The goal of The KIND Fund is to provide clothes and essentials for Kids In NeeD, in grades K-12, by empowering educators with a funded resource they can use. Donations can be made here:

The KIND Fund will work with local stores to purchase large quantities of gift cards of $150 each for a kid that is in need.

100% of your donation goes directly to buying clothes for Kids In Need.



The KIND fund is a resource for our trusted educators to allow them to help students K-12 who are in need..

As an educator, when you see a child in need, you can request through the KIND Fund to purchase $150 worth of clothing for the child.

Educator Steps –
1.  Identify a student in need
2.  Complete a simple request (using the app found in the app stores, see below)
3.  We will give the request to a volunteer with a $150 gift card
4.  Volunteers will shop and deliver clothing to you to give to the child.

We are so excited to announce the Kind Fund App. All educator requests and volunteer registration will now be directly through the app. In Google Play or Apple Store search for ‘Kind Fund’ and look for the following icon to download the app and register as a user. If you have any questions or concerns, please email:



The KIND Fund has already served more than 3400 kids in need, and we want to serve 1000’s more so we need your help! If you want to help change lives, sign up to volunteer and shop for these kids.

(Please note that we ask our volunteers to shop and deliver the clothes within a week of accepting the packet, because they need our help so desperately. )

Step 1 - Go to Google Play or the Apple Store and search for the KIND Fund – then download the App. Look for the following ICON

Step 2 - Register as a volunteer and change your status to AVAILABLE when you’re ready to shop. We’ll contact you via the app regarding next steps when a child’s packet has been assigned to you.
