Invest in Kids Recommends

Volunteers are the backbone of our organization and without their commitment, support and hard work, so many of our initiatives would not be possible. We would like to acknowledge the hard work and many hours that all our volunteers have given to Invest in Kids.

The members of our Board of Directors have put in countless hours helping to guide our organization. Our Board of Trustees and Board of Advisors have donated their time and guidance through a variety of projects and events this year. We also thank the Development Committee who helps us plan and deliver on our fundraising objectives.

Invest in Kids is also sincerely grateful to all the fantastic volunteers who have made our Battle of the Brains®, Celebrity Golf Classic and all our other events so successful this year.

We could not do it without you.
