How You Can Help
KFRC is a non-profit organization that depends on grants, fundraisers and donations from local, individual, businesss and service organizations to fund its programs. We also rely on volunteers and in kind donations. It becomes increasingly important that KFRC, as a local non-profit organization, continues to provide services as the community experiences the results of the economic downturn and the accompanying reduction in social services. There are several ways to support KFRC.
A PayPal account is NOT necessary.

KFRC’s ever popular Mommy, Daddy and Me playgroups provide a much needed outlet and support system for area families with young children. Sponsoring a playgroup is a new option for assisting KFRC. You can choose to sponsor a playgroup for a day for a donation of $150 or for 1 month for a donation of $600. When sponsoring, you may choose a special playgroup date or month; and you may sponsor in honor of someone special or for a notable occasion and KFRC will gladly display that information at the playgroup.
