Youth Philanthropy

Kids for Kids is a service learning initiative that provides the opportunity for elementary, middle school, high school and college students to participate in fundraising projects to support Kosair Children’s Hospital. Participants learn how rewarding it is to contribute to the local community and have fun helping other kids just like themselves!

We offer a variety of programs and ideas that we can customize to fit your school or organization. A representative from the Children’s Hospital Foundation will discuss your project ideas and, in most cases, can provide the following resources to help promote your efforts:

  • Pledge envelopes
  • Online fundraising Web page, initial set-up and troubleshooting
  • Kids for Kids stickers or buttons (limit one per student and faculty member)
  • "Just for Kids" balloon cutouts
  • Prizes and recognition

If you would like more information for your school, PTA, club, athletic team or other group, contact Natalie Gupton at (502) 629-5238.

Teen Board

High school students hold positions on this special board that meets once a month during the school year. Teen board members volunteer at Kosair Children's Hospital and special Children's Hospital Foundation events. They plan special evenings and crafts for patients, as well as the planning and execution of other outside fundraising events.

Members are expected to commit to attend meetings once a month during the school year. These meetings are primarily held on Sunday afternoons. Members are also strongly encouraged to volunteer at events throughout the year.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2013-2014 Teen Board. Please check back in Spring 2014 for more information about our 2014-2015 Teen Board.

For more information contact Natalie Gupton at (502) 629-5238.

Party for a Good Cause

Instead of presents at your next birthday party or other gift-giving celebration, ask friends and family to give donations to Kosair Children's Hospital. Prior to your event, the Children's Hospital Foundation can help you set up a personalized online fundraising page for the occasion. Donations can be designated for a specific part of the hospital or simply to the area of greatest need.

For those who prefer to donate items, please consult our current wish list. All items must be new and unwrapped. Opportunities to present your gift at Kosair Children's Hospital are available upon request.

Email Natalie Gupton to get started.
