Soquel, CA – Kids’ Chance of California (KCOCA), a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide need-based educational scholarships to the children of California workers who have been fatally or seriously injured on the job, recently published its 2019-2020 annual report–showcasing a record breaking year despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“From COVID-19 and campus closures to economic pressures and our home state’s destructive wildfires, this year has been a challenging time for all of us,” said Amy Hanson, KCOCA Board President. “In the midst of it all, I’m happy to report that KCOCA has continued to thrive as an organization. I am so grateful for the compassion, persistence and generosity of our supporters, and the strong desire of our kids to achieve their educational goals.”
The 2019-2020 Annual Report is published today to launch Kids’ Chance Awareness Week, which is celebrated nationally from November 9-13 this year. Awareness Week provides a national platform to increase visibility for the Kids’ Chance mission across all 47 state organizations.
The KCOCA Annual Report ensures transparency and accountability to both the students we serve, as well as the sponsors and donors who make our mission possible. We continue to track significant year-over-year growth, holding our operating costs steady at 10 percent.
