Kids Helping Schools

Posted on April 25, 2016

Kids Helping Schools (“KHS”) is a youth-led, grassroots-funded organization created by Kate Aschkenasy with the primary goal of providing resources and necessary supplies to local area schools in underserved communities. As a byproduct of KHS’s primary mission, it also seeks to teach more fortunate children how fulfilling contributing their time can be.

As early as fifth grade Kate learned that many schools in the Philadelphia area had both willing students that were eager to learn and terrifically engaged teachers excited to create worthwhile programming; unfortunately, many of these school had meager financial resources to support their educational needs beyond the basics. Kate immediately dreamed of a way to serve those students by sharing the resources that she saw available in her school and community. She built KHS with the goal of supplying teachers and schools with the supplies and funding that they need to fund specific programming otherwise not covered by the schools’ budget.

The application is quite simple; it can be found directly on my website under the tab “Grants”. We have the ability to give between $500 and $5,000, depending on the need of the program, and the application is due June 15th.
