While we’re anxiously waiting for the newest addition to our family, we’re thinking of all the education she needs to survive and flourish in this changing world. With that in mind, we’re remembering those families that have the same feelings as ours but lack the financial backbone to send their child(ren) to school. Instead of bringing your beautiful and generous gifts, please consider making donations to keep those less privileged children in school. Also if you like the mission of KCIS consider supporting one, two, or more students so that they can stay in school and receive much needed education instead of working to make a living for themselves and their families and lose the chance of receiving education.

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.
