What is Fairfield County Giving Day?
Kids Helping Kids is proud to be a part of the annual Fairfield County Giving Day, hosted by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation (FCCF), which inspires our region to raise money for local nonprofit organizations in just 24 hours through online donations. FCCF also awards additional cash prizes to non-profits who show excellence in their fundraising abilities on this day. Help us win those additional prizes!
In 2020 we raised $30,300! This year our goal is to raise $40,000!
Help us reach our goal and make your donation go farther by donating during one of our matching gift power hours! All donations will be doubled by our generous sponsors if donated during these times:
12:00 am to 9:00 am
9:00 pm to 11:59 pm
How to Support KHK on Giving Day!

Everyone loves a champion, including us! We really need fundraising champions to help drive people to our Giving Day profile page on Feb 25. Join us by making your own personal peer-to-peer page now! Visit the link below to get started! It is quick and easy to do! You can set our own goal, tell a little about your experience with KHK, and easily share the link with your own family and friends on Giving Day.
Notes of Hope!
Every year, KHK commits to making a greeting card of hope and encouragement for every $10 donation received on Giving Day. The cards made in 2021 will benefit Berni & Murcer - Friends for Life, a local non-profit that works to provide support for the brave children and families who are battling cancer.
Phone-a-thons are an engaging way to raise support for our organization on specific days of giving! We all have busy schedules and a thousand emails in our inbox so sometimes a quick phone call is a nice reminder! Join us virtually on Giving Day to contact some of KHK's supporters! We will be meeting in a virtual conference room to make calls together and hype up this day of giving! All callers will be provided with specific call information and conversation scripts. One lucky participant will also win an exclusive piece of KHK swag!
In order to increase awareness for Giving Day, FCCF has created a virtual scavenger hunt for children. Five (5) Kids Care Scavenger Hunt submissions will be randomly selected to win a $500 prize for the nonprofit listed in Question 13 of their Scavenger Hunt. Start your scavenger hunt on behalf of Kids Helping Kids today and submit by February 25th for a chance to win a $500 donation to KHK in your name!
