Kids’ Chance of Pennsylvania (Kids’ Chance of PA) was founded in 1997 and is part of similar, but unaffiliated organizations, throughout the United States. Each of the founders of Kids’ Chance of Pennsylvania had an affiliation with workers’ compensation in our state. They were attorneys, brokers, underwriters, self-insurers, rehabilitation specialists, nurses and others interested in helping young men and women who have been thrust into difficult circumstances as a result of a catastrophic work-related accident.
Kids’ Chance is a non-profit organization. Scholarship funds come through fully tax-deductible donations from individuals, companies, foundations, the United Way and various organizations active in workers’ compensation matters. Annual fund-raising events raise additional scholarship funds.
For 25 years, Kids’ Chance of PA has proudly made a significant difference in the lives of affected Pennsylvania families by providing scholarship support to help eligible students pursue and achieve their higher education goals.
