It’s Sanaz's birthday

This is a surprise for Sanaz's birthday! She will know of this page on her birthday Sep 6, 2018. Dearest lovely friends, your generous donation will go to kids in the most underprivileged regions of Iran who are deprived of going to school due to the financial situation of their families! This gift will give them means to exercise their basic rights for education. You make a family in need happy. You are so very kind and we are really grateful to you for this unparalleled gift. This is a tax deductible donation and eligible for employee match.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to break the cycle of poverty by helping children stay in school.

Keep Children In School (KCIS) implements its mission by either matching sponsors directly to children whose families cannot afford to keep them in school or accept one time donations, thus enabling them to continue their education from elementary school through college.

What began in 2000 as a small project by family and friends to “give back,” KCIS evolved into a recognized charity in 2010 in the state of California and received its OFAC license (IA-16947) from the department of treasury in 2012.

Help a Child

You can help a child by making a general donation, becoming a sponsor, or contributing to their back to school or Nowruz shopping.

Dedicate an Event

Dedicate your special day and help change lives. It’s easy! Create an event on our website and ask your guests to donate to KCIS in lieu of gifts.
