Upon completion of the volunteer responsibilities, funds are paid directly to the merchant or organization that will fulfill the specified need.
 
SUCCESSES: Since receiving nonprofit certification in 2015, KidScholly has awarded hundreds of scholarships (>$80,000 worth) to children across the US. SchollyKids are pursuing sports, guitar, art and acting classes, tutoring, music therapy, and more. Combined, these participants have contributed hundreds of hours of volunteer service to their communities.

Background Statement

Our Story

On the day of their baptism, a sister and brother each were given $150 by their parents with a challenge:
 
"Take this money and make it grow, then use it to help those who need it more than you do."
 
Their brainstorming resulted in their creation of KidScholly. Through our organization, kids K-12 can earn scholarships for extracurricular activities by volunteering in their community.   
 
KidScholly started as a grassroots organization operating out of a garage, but it was immediately evident that we had touched on a need that was vast and that resonated with many people and organizations.  Our first $5,000 in donations came in the first week, and we took on interns to help us expand our capacity to handle the exponential growth and demand.  Within six months, we became an organization with a Board of Directors who have excellent experience and credentials, six independent contractors, 4 volunteers, and a Chief Opportunity Giver (~CEO) who is a physician taking time away from medicine to volunteer her time to see her children's dream to help other kids become successful.  
 
KidScholly is positioning itself to become self-sustaining within three years through the establishment of micro business relationships designed to funnel profits back into KidScholly to cover costs and scholarships.  We are also seeking strategic partnerships with corporations, influencers, and other charities to be able to expand our program and serve the greatest number of kids.   


 


Impact Statement

2015:

  1. KidScholly was founded in 2015 and quickly gained enough support to award over $20,000 in scholarships for extracurricular activities to kids ranging from age 5-18 (K-12 grades) in our first year.  
  2. KidScholly engaged community partners to allow us to serve more children with our scholarship funds. These include but are not limited to Santa Ana Police Athletic and Activity League, Irvine Pony Baseball, Acting Academy for Kids, and Orange County School of the Arts. 
2016:
  1. KidScholly rewarded ~$49,000 in scholarships (average $500 per scholarship) in 2016 to K-12 kids in need.   
  2. Corporate sponsorships, grants,  and other endorsements have actively been sought to provide another source of funding aside from donations and revenue from the microbusiness. 
2017:
1. Year to date, we are on pace to have another $50,000 year if donations continue. We receive applications daily and this is only growing as word about us reaches more widely. 
Please watch these special videos of some of our SchollyKid successes:
 


Needs Statement

What KidScholly needs most of all in 2017:

1. Financial stability to fund the growing demand for scholarships as awareness of KidScholly grows. Unrestricted grants would be tremendous in allowing our continued success.
2. Resources to employ a few key staff and cover basic operational expenses in a more stable way to ensure our continued success.
3. Corporate sponsors to promote awareness of KidScholly and to provide additional financial support during our growth phase.
4. Social media and advertising support to reach out to donors and applicants alike.  

CEO Statement

KidScholly is relatively young, but it is unique and very special to many, many young people who are being empowered to shape their futures in a new way.  KidScholly is founded BY kids FOR kids and the founding kids are MY kids.  I couldn't be prouder or more hopeful for the future knowing big hearts still live in little people and that all kids can impact their world and their communities in positive ways. 
 
Kids in need still need to be kids.  Please help us change futures! 

Board Chair Statement

The CEO and board chair are one in the same.  Proud mom, doctor, dreamer, do-er, and determined to make KidScholly a success.

Other Ways to Donate/Volunteer

KidScholly makes it easy and convenient to support our SchollyKids. We find that the average cost of a scholarship is $500,  and we have a goal to fund as many kids across the country as possible.  In 2017, we are turning to crowdfunding to allow us to open our program up to even more applicants. We need your help in any of the following ways:

Donations: 
You can visit our website, mail a check, or call to discuss larger gifts or in-kind donations. Any amount that you give provides an opportunity for a kid in need to be a kid and to find their talents.
 
Sponsor a child: 
We post our scholarship requests on www.crowdrise.com/kidscholly. You can choose to sponsor a child's dream through donations or by creating a fundraising campaign of your own.  People can have car washes, lemonade stands, give up birthday presents, and/ or ask for donations to support the child instead for the campaign you create.  
 
Shop at heritagetradition.com
We feel incredibly fortunate to have one of our board members generously donating proceeds from his online women's apparel company, Heritage Tradition, to support our scholarship fund.  Shopping there helps kids across the country. 
 
Volunteer: 
KidScholly utilizes volunteers and interns to keep operational costs down and to offer a learning environment for individuals passionate about our mission. Please call for current opportunities. KidScholly also hosts fundraising events and assistance is always appreciated. Please email [email protected] for more information.
 
Support Your Passion:
Sponsor a specific child to participate in an activity that you believe made a difference in your life as a young person. Whether arts, academics, or athletics, you can support a SchollyKids' dream while they learn the joy of giving back to their community. Go to www.crowdrise.com/kidscholly to sponsor a child.

KidScholly

KidScholly aims to provide 100 scholarships in 2017 to kids K-12 that are in need and who will contribute > 2,000 hours of service, make positive impacts on their communities, and develop greater pride, purpose, and work ethic.... and the AWESOMENESS goes on ! Scholarships will allow K-12 kids to be involved in activities such as sports, arts, extra academic opportunities, music, and early interventions for learning challenges without barriers and financial restraints.
Budget  $100,000.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Citizenship
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years) Families At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 

 

KidScholly plans to scholarship 500 kids in grades K-12 nationally to positively impact the following issues: at risk youths, sedentary lifestyles, work ethic, and the healthy development of children.

1. Participating in afterschool activities has been linked to gains in self-confidence, increases in academic achievement, and positive schoolwork habits, as well as the development of social skills.

2. The added expectation of volunteerism enhances awareness that one can contribute on many levels and become empowered to overcome difficult circumstances through a good work ethic.
Program Long-Term Success 

 

1. Increase the overall graduation rate of at-risk students by allowing them to pursue their interests, passions,  and gifts without financial barriers.
 
2. Increase academic performance by early identification of students with learning challenges, disabilities, and low achievement, and allow for enhanced support outside of traditional school resources.
 
3. Improve the percentage of at-risk students that advance to postsecondary education.
 
4. Promote volunteerism in young people to improve awareness and consciousness of the benefits of giving back. Community service will lead to a greater sense of belonging to and impacting the community in which participants live.  
 
5. Promote work ethic, leadership, and provide empowerment.  
 
Program Success Monitored By 

 Monitoring is conducted by:

Pre and Post Interviews - KidScholly tracks and interviews our scholarship recipients and families before and after participation in scholarship activities to measure skills learned both physically, emotionally, and socially. Additionally, students' academic performance will be discussed and monitored.
 
Resources and referrals will also be provided to families for needs outside the scope of KidScholly whenever possible.  
 
Priority will be given to returning scholarship students for ongoing support in a longitudinal fashion. All students will be contacted at 6 months and 12 months to access progress and success based on their initial assessment including academic performance. KidScholly will also provide additional resources and partner with the community to allow students to pursue their interests.  
 
This information will be utilized by staff at all levels to make changes and adapt the resources available to our KidScholly participants.
