You have the power to make a real difference and brighten the future of a child!

Have you ever waited for someone? Did you feel the tension in your gut, the anxiousness and shaky hope that you wouldn't be let down? If so, did you wait for more than a month? More than a year?

James, a 9 year old from Brainerd, has been waiting for a Kinship mentor for over a year and a half! And to make matters worse James has two sisters who are already matched with a Kinship Partners mentor.

Are you wondering how this can be? Well, it's certainly not because of James. He is a thoughtful kid who looks out for his siblings and has a great sense of humor.

In life we are provided few situations in which we are rewarded just by walking into a room. Mentoring is one of those situations.

We believe that all kids deserve a positive relationship with a caring adult. Our mission at Kinship Partners is to help children like James to reach their full potential through a personal relationship with a caring, trained volunteer who becomes their friend, role model and source of strength.

Today I am asking you to consider a gift to help support our "Brighten the Future" Annual Campaign, and help kids and families in our great community.

  • $25 Offsets the cost of a background check
  • $50 Provides activities for our matches and children on the waiting list
  • $100 Supports a child on our waiting list
  • $250 Recruits and trains a caring mentor
  • $500 Supports a mentoring partnership for one year

This year our campaign goal is $20,000 and with your financial support we can reach even greater numbers of children, helping them to reach their full potential with the help of their mentor.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration!

Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help we can "Brighten the Future" and help kids and families in our community.
