Kinship Partners Inc

You have the power to make a real difference and brighten the future of a child by donating to Kinship Partners.

Kinship Partners believes that all kids deserve a positive relationship with a caring adult. Through these relationships, we increase children’s developmental assets such as social skills and self-esteem while offering new experiences and opportunities to them. Kinship Partners improves the future of the community by fostering these valuable relationships. Every decision that a child makes somehow contributes to his or her future. Healthy decisions mean brighter paths on the road to a positive community.

With your financial support, we can reach even greater numbers of children, helping them to reach their full potential through a personal relationship with a caring, trained volunteer who becomes their friend, role model, and mentor.

In 30+ years Kinship Partners has not received any governmental support. We depend on a mix of foundation support, business & individual donations as well as fundraising events to fund our program.

Your donation will support the following components of the One-on-One and School-Based Mentoring Programs:
  • Assist in mentor recruitment to eliminate waiting lists.
  • Ensure adequate screening and matching of new mentors with newly enrolled youth.
  • Train prospective mentors.
  • Provide ongoing partnership support to Adult Partners (mentors), Junior Partner (mentees) and family.
  • Administer evaluation surveys to both partners and parents.

Your financial support will increase Kinship Partners capacity to have a lasting impact on youth and families in Crow Wing County, southern Cass County, and the Staples/Motley area.
