Kids for Kids CT was created for the sole purpose of teaching children in the Connecticut school system to raise money to donate to charities that help other children.
Our mission is to raise money through 3-on-3 basketball tournaments and other athletic functions allowing children to volunteer, organize, manage, and participate.
The objective is to teach kids how to give back to the community and understand the concept of philanthropy. 100% of the profits are donated to children-focused charities.
Our first fundraising basketball tournament was in March of 2013; more than 425 Glastonbury students participated, boys and girls in grades 3 – 12. Along with corporate and local sponsors, we raised $21,000 our first year.
To date we have raised well over $130,000 to help kids in need, with a focus on local charities right here in our own backyard.
