The Calgary Foundation is Helping us Grow!

09 Aug The Calgary Foundation is Helping us Grow!

We are so excited to announce that Kids Up Front is undertaking our first ever research, outcomes and impact project, generously supported by The Calgary Foundation.

As Kids Up Front approaches our 20th anniversary in 2020, we wanted to be able to communicate more clearly about the benefits of our programs for our kids, families and agencies!

Every day, we receive stories from families, our 300 partner agencies, and donors about the impacts of our program in our community, the meaning of the experiences for our kids, and how the tickets they receive or donate mean “More Than a Ticket” to those receiving them.

We have thousands of stories, letters, notes and photos that we have received over the past 20 years.

With the help of The Calgary Foundation, Kids Up Front is collaborating with Sarah Pervez of Community Voices Consulting to work on this project, and explore and determine our impact on our kids, families, and partner agencies. This is important work that will help us sustain our programs, guide our future strategic directions, and help us in our communications with donors, stakeholders and beneficiaries.

We are grateful to all of you who are assisting us with interviews, surveys and focus groups to get this important work completed.

Thank you, to everyone who shares our passion for what we do, and volunteers their time and resources to make our “More Than a Ticket” program a success!

Thank you to The Calgary Foundation for your generous support!

We can’t wait to share the results with you!
