​Letter From The President

Dear Friends of Kids' Chance:

Kids' Chance of Delaware was created to provide scholarships for college and vocational education to children of Delaware workers who have been fatally or seriously injured in a work-related accident, resulting in financial need. The hardships to children and families created by the death or serious injury of a parent often include financial ones, making it difficult for deserving young people to pursue their educational dreams.

​As an industry professional who has been employed in the workers' compensation community for over 15 years, I have witnessed the emotional impact and financial burden placed on families who have had a loved one fatally or seriously injured on the job. Volunteering for Kids’ Chance of Delaware gives me an opportunity to support our community and make a difference in the lives of children who through no fault of their own are now suddenly faced with an uncertain future.

​Kids' Chance of Delaware, Inc., formed as a 501(c)3 charity in April 2017, ​allows for our community and a wide variety of companies and organizations to come together and support ​ a worthy cause. We all wish that we could do more, especially for the families and children of a seriously injured worker. By supporting Kids’ Chance of Delaware, we can make a real difference for these families and brighten the future for their children. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, Kids' Chance of Delaware, Inc. will use 100% of all donations to ​award scholarships to deserving students.

The first Kids' Chance organization was founded in Georgia in 1998. It has now grown to over 47 state chapters nationwide. Kids' Chance of Delaware, Inc. was created to build on the success of other state organizations and in conjunction with Kids' Chance of America. ​We are always excited and anxious to welcome new volunteers who will support our mission as we forge ahead. If you are interested in working with this dynamic group of individuals, please contact us at kcdeinfo@gmail.com.
