The Kids Give Back® School Program

Our Kids Give Back® School Program is a community initiative that supports schools that want to get involved with Cleveland Clinic Children’s.

Students will learn important life lessons such as teamwork and leadership skills, which will help them as they go on to higher education and into their professional careers.

And everyone can feel good knowing that 100% of the dollars raised by your school will stay local and will turn into innovations and cures for our littlest patients.

This program allows your school to select a fundraiser that best fits your community. Our team is here to guide you along the way and provide tips and tools for success.

One student from each school fundraiser will be selected as part of our Class of Champions. This student will be honored at our Annual Kids Give Back Luncheon with Cleveland Clinic CEO and President Tom Mihaljevic, MD.

Kids Give Back® Spotlight – Corpus Christi Academy

Kids Give Back | Cleveland ClinicThank you to one of our Kids Give Back® Champions, The Corpus Christi Academy Lady Eagles Volleyball Team, for hosting its Second Annual Aces for Autism Event. In the event’s inaugural year, the team raised enough money to purchase five iPads for the students at the Lerner School for Autism at Cleveland Clinic Children’s. This year, their goal was to raise more money than last year and support a software upgrade for the iPads previously purchased with funds from their event. At one of their matches, the sixth- and seventh-grade girls asked family and friends for donations for every successful serve they hit over the net. The team also hosted a dress-down day at school where they could participate by donating $1 to the cause. This year, the girls raised over $2,500 to support the Lerner School. 

If your school would like to participate in our Kids Give Back® School Program, please contact getinvolved@ccf.org.
