What we do

Kids’ Chance of California is a non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to provide need-based educational scholarships to the children of California workers who have been fatally or seriously injured on the job.

Why Kids Chance?
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, California alone had over 450,000 disabling injuries  resulting in 375 work-related deaths in 2012.

Serious work-related accidents can have a devastating impact on families, especially children. The financial impact can be life shattering. The future can look frightening to someone whose parent or spouse has been seriously or fatally injured at work. Already confronting difficult emotions, they often must confront the hurdle of funding their education—the key to their future and ours. Each year, hundreds of kids face this challenge. We can make a difference in California.

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.
