Fundraising Efforts

If you are short on time, but are interested in showing your support for Kid Zone, we offer a few fundraising opportunities throughout the year.

  • Amazon Smile — AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Kid Zone every time you shop on Amazon, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to Kid Zone. On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you simply select Kid Zone Child Care Center in St. Louis Park, MN and start shopping! Amazon takes care of the rest!

  • GiveMN.org — throughout the year, contributions are accepted for our current fundraising efforts.

  • Give Local America — May 6 is Give Local America, a national giving day to ignite generosity for causes like Kid Zone!

  • Give to the Max day — in mid-November, be part of the Great Minnesota Give Together and show your support for Kid Zone.

  • Plant Sale — every spring, we host a plant sale featuring Gerten’s flowers and plants. Delivered right before Mother’s Day, the flowers and plants are a great way to start off spring!

  • Employer Donations — many local employers like Target, General Mills, UnitedHealth Group and Accenture participate in annual employee giving campaigns like the United Way. Consider a donation to Kid Zone as part of these giving campaigns. (Our tax id is 41-1683532.)
