Whitefish Community Foundation’s – Kids Fund Program – Giving Voice to Children, will work to help nonprofit organizations by providing funding that enables them to better assist our community’s vulnerable and homeless youth. The goal is to move them from surviving to thriving. The three main areas of focus are to provide safety, educational opportunities, and access to a healthy life, in order to create lasting life changes.
The Kids Fund Program will work with nonprofits and community partners to fund programs that will:

  • Provide advocacy based on identified needs for our most vulnerable youth
  • Increase access to educational opportunities, tutoring, growth, and graduation, and employment assistance with job skills training
  • Work to prevent youth homelessness by providing effective tools for prevention and direction toward stable housing
  • Meet the basic needs of our youth by providing access to food, clothing, hygiene, and laundry facilities
