Mission & Overview
Kids’ Chance of Virginia (KCVA) provides post-secondary and trade school scholarships to the children of Virginia workers who have been severely or fatally injured in a workplace accident.
Fulfilling educational dreams: The Kids’ Chance of Virginia mission is to help fulfill the educational dreams of young adults who may not be able to reach their potential without our financial assistance.
Industry-wide support: Kids’ Chance of Virginia is unique in that it allows for a wide variety of companies and organizations to come together and participate in a worthy cause related to their industry. This includes insurance companies, self-insurance groups, attorneys, medical providers and other industry vendors like claims, loss-prevention and audit service companies.
To date, 100% of donations fund scholarships: As a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 2011, Kids’ Chance of Virginia uses 100% of donations to fund scholarships. We can afford to do so by keeping our administration costs low and seeking out additional funding through grants and event sponsorships. We are dedicated to providing as many scholarships as possible, while remaining transparent in our budget allocations.
The first Kids’ Chance organization was founded in Georgia in 1998. Virginia’s chapter was created to build on the success of other state chapters and in conjunction with Kids’ Chance of America. More information on both the national and state organizations can be found at www.kidschance.org.
