Kids in Crisis Receives Dalio Challenge Grant

In an effort to help Kids In Crisis scale their critical services to children, the Dalio Foundation is making a challenge grant of $150,000. The agency must raise matching funds of $150,000 by June 30.

Kids In Crisis has been engaged in planning for its long term sustainability. A recent needs-based assessment pointed to the need for enhancing infrastructure and growing development efforts, which funds provided through the challenge will make possible.

The Selander Foundation has generously helped jumpstart the efforts with a gift of $50,000 to be used towards these goals. They have shared their hopes to see the community at-large help support the challenge as well.

Jan and Steve Zide have also donated a generous $50,000 to support the challenge, in hopes the community will step up and help fill the remaining $50,000. According to Jan Zide, “This is a wonderful opportunity at a critical time of need for Kids In Crisis.”
