KINfolk was founded on a simple principle: People helping Kids In Need. Children with serious illness and injury may spend many days, weeks, or months confined in a hospital or at home where they are both socially and emotionally isolated. KINfolk is dedicated to delivering a critical service to these children, providing them with laptops and free Internet access to help them stay connected to friends, family, and school while relieving the anxiety, pain, and depression associated with their illness. Since 1999, we’ve helped over 85,000 children in 31 states, and with your help we can continue that proud tradition of service.
Globally recognized and respected organizations like Microsoft, Verizon, AstraZeneca, ClearChannel, Ronald McDonald House, and A.I. DuPont Hospital for Children trust and support KINfolk. These partnerships have fueled our growth, enabling us to serve over 85,000 children in 31 states since our founding in 1999. KINfolk supports two laptop lending programs focused on helping chronically ill children and their families stay connected to friends, family, school, and work. Over the years, KINfolk has delivered 9,800 computers to deserving children & families via a network of 500 volunteers nationwide – all fueled by a donor network of 100,000 organizations, businesses, and individuals.
KINfolk is very proud of the partnerships it has forged with world renowned charities and globally respected businesses including: A.I. Dupont Hospital for Children, AstraZeneca, Good Samaritan Hospital, Grotto Pizza, Microsoft, The National Basketball Retired Players Association, The Philadelphia 76ers, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Verizon, and Wilmington University. These partnerships have fueled our growth over the years and expanded our reach nationwide.
We are equally proud of our sponsors that include some of the worlds most iconic and respected companies such as AstraZeneca, Dupont, Microsoft, and Verizon. These sponsors provide financial support and key infrastructure that enables us to fulfill our mission of providing free computers, training, and Internet access to hospitalized and homebound children. These computers provide a critical lifeline to these children and their families, helping them combat the social and emotional isolation of their illness by keeping them connected to friends, family, school, and work.
