Connect with KidWorks!

FACT: Over 80% of KidWorks' funding goes directly to programs 


Donor/Volunteer Highlight 

  • For over 7 years, U.S. Bank continues to be an exemplary partner of KidWorks as we touch lives with hope. Leadership volunteers Scott McPherson, KidWorks Board Member and U.S. Bank Sr.VP Market Manager; and Adrian Montero, Fund Development Committee Member and Sr. VP, U.S. Bank, have played an important role in KidWorks growth, fund development and mission outreach efforts.

  • In addition to corporate and individual contributions from U.S. Bank employees, their volunteer commitment to KidWorks has been overwhelming. David Salisbury, Brandon Roberts and Kayo Yoshikawa, just to name a few, actively sign up to support various committees and programs.


  • During the past few years, a group of more than 30 employees have visited KidWorks weeks before Christmas to decorate and bring holiday color and cheer to our 4 community centers. Others sign up to help at our Christmas Store; and throughout the year various U.S Bank team members share their talents and expertise with our students at workshops and outdoor activities

You might be the person who will teach a child to love to read, or to steer a teen away from drugs, the person who offers an encouraging word at just the right time, or the person that will help ensure our continued service to the community through help with planning a fundraising event.
