As part of its ongoing efforts to improve the lives of children in the communities it serves, The Rite Aid Foundation is welcoming a new class of charities into its KidCents program for 2019, offering grants to 416 nonprofits that advance the health and wellbeing of children. Each charity will receive a $5,000 KidCents grant, totaling more than $2 million.
“The Rite Aid Foundation is committed to making a meaningful and lasting difference in the communities we serve. Improving the health and wellbeing of children is a critical component of that commitment,” said Tracy Henderson, director of The Rite Aid Foundation and charitable giving initiatives. “From empowering young girls to succeed to providing a safe place for children to stay, this year’s charities provide valuable services in their communities. We are proud to provide them with additional funding to make an even greater impact on the children they serve.”
The 2019 class includes 145 charities who are participating in the KidCents program for the first time. The selected charities’ programs encompass a wide variety of projects that advance children’s health and wellbeing, promote academic growth and support a safe environment to live and grow.
This year’s charities were selected in partnership with Rite Aid associates who live and work in communities served by Rite Aid, with a goal to positively impact the children living in those communities. In addition to a one-time $5,000 KidCents grant, each charity also will have access to a variety of funding opportunities throughout 2019.
