Help us Make Miracles Happen: Contribute to The Kids Fund

A Message from Sal Perisano, Long-standing volunteer of The Kids Fund, Chairman and CEO of iPARTY

"I like the Kids Fund for some of the same reasons I like retailing. I can see the results of my work very quickly. The Kids Fund is not a large, bureaucratic fund where you never see the good things that come of your support. I know that we are doing good things for kids every day - funding the Breastfeeding Room, buying bicycle helmets for kids, funding the pediatric weight management clinic, giving families window guards so their kids are safer. There's a lot of activity. The dedication of the staff, the nurses, and the doctors is inspiring. And infectious."

Since 1984, the Kids Fund has been quietly performing little miracles for some of Boston’s neediest children. Our goal is to provide assistance for children’s most basic needs, whether it’s a mattress for a family whose home has been burned to the ground, or special formula for a baby suffering from malnutrition, or funds to help send a city-bound kid to summer camp.

The Kids Fund works in collaboration with the Pediatric faculty and staff in supporting and initiating programs and in making little miracles happen every day. Our support is simple and direct. We want to do everything possible to give children a chance for growth, for a healthy and bright future.
