The mission of Compassion For Kids is to utilize our financial resources, business experience and relationships to support non-profits dedicated to help inner-city children involved in educational and poverty-related programs.
Serving Children Through Business Collaboration
Our support for children’s non-profits is financial, consultative and collaborative providing funding and guidance, helping to improve fund-raising and marketing effectiveness. Charities we support are vetted financially and operationally for effectiveness of donated fund utilization.
Children’s non-profits we support include a children’s foster home, inner-city poverty programs, inner-city charter schools, school vouchers for at-risk children, certain public schools with Title 1 status, and post-high school educational transition programs for at-risk youth.
Mike and Peg Standish started Advanced-Online in 1985 and sold the company 30 years later to Follett Corporation. During the years, the company provided financial support for children’s poverty-related and education efforts for at-risk children.
Mike and Peg remain committed to providing financial support for non-profits through business endeavors. Compassion For Children was started to sell branded merchandise to organizations while returning the bulk of profits to charities.
Most businesses purchase branded promotional and apparel products…and everyone wants to help kids…Compassion For Kids provides others an opportunity to fund much needed inner-city children’s educational and poverty programs.
