Mission Statement

The Kids In Need Foundation is a national 501(c)(3) charitable organization with offices in Dayton, Ohio, and Minneapolis, Minnesota. Founded in 1995, the Foundation’s mission is to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need. The Kids In Need National Network of Resource Centers includes 29 facilities where teachers from low-income schools go to obtain free school supplies for their students. In addition, two Kids In Need Teacher Grant programs provide K-12 educators in the U.S. with funding to support innovative learning experiences for students. The Kids In Need Foundation has distributed $450 million in school supplies since its founding, directly benefiting 2.4 million students and 100,000 teachers annually, and has awarded $1.4 million in grants to teachers. Kids In Need has received Charity Navigator’s highest four-star rating for four consecutive years, indicating that it operates in a fiscally responsible way and outperforms most other charities in America.

Mr. David H Smith

Profile:

With more than 30 years experience working in the school supplies and office products industry, Dave Smith brings great knowledge to the Kids In Need Foundation as its executive director. Dave was there when the Foundation was established in 1995. Over the years he served as a volunteer on the Board of Directors, chairing the Board for two years, and served on various committees. In 2006, the Board asked Dave to assume the executive director’s position for the Foundation, which he did, and he has led Kids In Need toward increased national awareness for the purpose of serving more children in need. Dave is a native of New Jersey but has lived in Minneapolis for more than 30 years.

Leadership Statement:

Although we serve 2.4 million students annually, it is important that we continue to help more children.  The need is so great, and with school budget cuts and a generally poor economy, more and more families cannot provide the basic school supplies needed by their children.  Kids In Need must acquire new donors to see that all students are able to participate in classroom learning experiences.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Children from impoverished families arrive every day at school willing and ready to learn, but lack the needed supplies like pencils, paper and notebooks. Teachers, seeing this need every day, will buy the needed supplies by spending their own money. The Kids In Need Foundation seeks to ease this financial burden by providing an avenue for teachers to obtain these supplies free-of-charge through the Kids In Need National Network of 29 Resource Centers. The Foundation also awards grants to teachers for innovative classroom projects through the Kids In Need Teacher Grants program, as well as assists in the development of community school supplies giveaway programs through its School Ready Supplies program. We do this on a permanent, national basis because of generous corporate partners and sponsors. With more corporate, individual, and community support, the Foundation will be able to serve even more of the more than 16 million children living in poverty who could benefit from the Foundation's year-round work.
