Joy Watkins, President of the Community Foundation of N. Florida (left) presents $1000 check to Kids Incorporated's Board President, Marcy Muldrow Sanders and Executive Director/CEO, Pamela Davis at our Board Meeting on March 27th.  The contribution was a result of Kids Incorporated's selection as one of the top ten agencies to receive votes in The Big Vote held recently as part of the FindLearnGive initiative.  We appreciate everyone who voted for Kids Incorporated and the Community Foundation's hard work and leadership in promoting philanthropy in the not-for-profit world!  Kids Incorporated maintains an endowment at the Foundation:  the Budd Bell Early Learning Endowment was created in memory of our late founder, Budd Bell.




Please allow us to brag about our program and our successes...  

  • 4 children who enrolled in our Early Head Start program last August as special needs children no longer met the criteria for that designation when our mid-year assessments were conducted in December!  This is a great example of the benefits that can be accomplished through comprehensive early intervention!

  • We received a compliance rate of 99.95% on our triennial On-Site Federal Review which took place the last week in January.  Review Team members from across the country were clearly impressed with their interactions with our Board of Directors, Early Head Start Policy Council members and the parents in our program.  Agency strengths identified in the written report included:

    • Management Systems:  they noted our ""efficient ways to use limited resources"

    • Volunteer Program:  especially our involvement of college interns

    • Community Partnerships: especially our relationship with Madison Correctional Institute (who has provided more than $274,000 in in-kind services over the past three years)

    • Playscapes:  the role our outdoor play has in the school readiness continuum and school readiness domains.
