Independence Fund

Our students work hard to achieve their dreams, and even after they’ve graduated from high school they need help to attend university or to get the vocational training to launch them into their chosen careers. The Kids Alive Independence Fund provides this assistance to deserving young people who are willing to meet certain requirements and remain accountable for their progress. Help a hopeful student take the next steps to a bright future!

$100 for a one-time gift
$1,200 for a year’s tuition assistance

How Your Gifts Are Used


75.4% Program Services for Children

12.4% Management and General

12.2% Fundraising and Promotion

Some organizations use their catalog items as “representative” gifts and the funds are pooled and spent more generally. But when you choose gifts through the Kids Alive Gift Catalog, your actual gift choices are allocated to the appropriate countries to meet specific needs identified in the catalog.

In the unlikely event that a gift you’ve designated is over-funded (or can no longer be carried out), your gift will be applied by Kids Alive International where needed most.

Gifts may not be designated for a particular child or site (unless that site is specifically mentioned in the gift description).
