Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Kars4Kids supports a network of mentoring, educational, and recreational programs for Jewish youth and their families across North America through its nonprofit partner, Oorah. We take a big-picture, holistic approach, bringing school, family and community together to develop a next generation of well-rounded and productive adults, with individualized mentorship and family support giving our children a solid foundation to become active contributors to society.

In addition to partnering in Oorah’s programs, Kars4Kids promotes youth development through community initiatives such as charitable distributions, public service and child safety awareness campaigns and small grants to educational and youth-oriented nonprofits.

Kars4Kids, through the funding of its sister charity Oorah, has a full suite of programs and services carefully designed to impact every aspect of a child’s development from the academic to the social and cultural. These programs, including school placement and tuition assistance, mentoring and extracurricular programs, family retreats and summer camps, accomplish the mission of fostering the overall growth of our children. A core group of paid staff leverages the hundreds of volunteers who power these programs, offering their services as mentors, educators and camp staff each year.

Kars4Kids utilizes its extensive media network and marketing resources, both online and off, to promote and impact the wellbeing of children with awareness campaigns and educational resources for parents and communities.
