WELCOME TO KIDS’ CHANCE OF WEST VIRGINIA, INC

 

INTRODUCING KIDS’ CHANCE

 

Children need parents, but sometimes something bad happens and a child will lose one or both parents at far too young of age.  Sometimes in West Virginia that something bad is a work related accident taking a parent from a child, or an occupational illness leaving a parent unable to fully support the needs of children. Knowing this, Governor Cecil H Underwood created the Kids’ Chance Task Force in September 1998.  This task force reviewed similar programs in other states and recommended the creation of Kids’ Chance of West Virginia.  Kids’ Chance of West Virginia was incorporated on December 11, 1998.  

 

Kids’ Chance believes:

                       *Children are society’s most valuable resource.

           *We have an obligation to give children the tools they need to succeed in life.

           *Access to higher education ensures that children have the necessary skills to be successful in the workplace.

           *Investing in our children’s future provides them the opportunity to make a difference in their own and other people’s lives.         

        

Kids’ Chance of West Virginia is a nonprofit scholarship fund which grants educational scholarships to the sons and daughters of West Virginia residents who suffered a serious, catastrophic or fatal workplace injury or illiness.  This is an ongoing program designed to help West Virginia’s kids for years to come.  Scholarship funds come through fully tax-deductible donations from individuals, companies, foundations and organizations active in workers’ compensation matters. Annual fund-raising events raise additional scholarship funds.
