WHO WE ARE
For Kids Foundation Monterey Bay is the financial provider of last resort for unmet critical needs of children through the age of 20.
We are a group of local community members who volunteer our time trying to make a difference where we live. All donations are distributed locally by people who live in, work in and know the Monterey Bay area. Many of our members work with underprivileged kids on an everyday basis and understand the needs of our local children. This understanding allows us to make informed decisions.
WHO WE HELP
For Kids Foundation Monterey Bay serves children and young adults from birth through age 19 in Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito Counties in California.
For Kids Foundation Monterey Bay provides basic assistance in areas such as education, health and well-being. We pay directly to service providers on behalf of children for items or services not covered under existing programs.
MEASURING OUR SUCCESS
“Lives changed” is the measure of our success. For Kids Foundation Monterey Bay maintains the privacy of children while tracking all donations made and funds expended.
Collaboration with other agencies in the community is accomplished by networking, especially through courts, schools and other local agencies who serve children. Because we are not a tightly regulated government agency, we have the flexibility to assist children who have no other options and the ability to expedite their requests.
For Kids Foundation Monterey Bay is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization recognized by the IRS. We comply with all audit and fiscal requirements for such foundations. We receive donations from private donors, corporations and businesses.
