Why donate to PRO Kids?

By making a donation, you are supporting local families in need access recreational activities for their children. Your donation gives kids the opportunity to gain important life skills, build confidence, interact with positive role models and create memories.

PRO Kids partners with local activity providers to help make these programs available to kids. However, the number of kids wanting to participate is often more than the donated spaces.

To make sure everyone can play, PRO Kids must raise $110,000 each year.  To help us reach that goal, we rely on your generous donations
