Smart Kids is celebrating the close of a milestone year with a terrific opportunity. A group of major donors have created a $50,000 Challenge Grant to enable Smart Kids to continue to expand the user-friendly, parent-centered information available on its website at www.SmartKidswithLD.org. The grant will also provide funding to reach out to more families struggling with the devastating effects of learning disabilities and ADHD.
The Laurence W. Levine Foundation, joined by Smart Kids’ Board of Directors and an anonymous donor, have committed $50,000 to the Smart Kids Challenge: 2010. These funds will serve to double individual contributions to Smart Kids with LD, dollar-for-dollar, up to the total pledged amount of $50,000.
This generous grant will provide for Smart Kids to continue its work putting children with LD and ADHD on the road to success: By empowering parents via Smart Kids’ website and e-newsletter launched in 2010. By encouraging parents to understand that these children are smart, and can succeed. And by providing a Guide to Action helping parents to become effective advocates – as well as offering practical advice and emotional support from those on the front lines: Other parents.
Donations made by January 15, 2011 will contribute toward earning the $50,000 Smart Kids Challenge: 2010 — and will help “throw a lifeline” to many more families of children with LD and ADHD.
