Updated Kids Fund Logo

Welcome to the new year and thanks to readers of The Capital Times, it will be a good one for recipients of Kids Fund grants.

Once again, donations will allow grants to dozens of local nonprofits that deal with the problems and challenges of young people in the Dane County area.

Although the drive to raise funds for the 2018 grants has officially ended, there are still hundreds of contributors to be acknowledged as we begin the new year. We will continue to do so in this space during the weeks ahead.

Kids Fund donations are welcome throughout the year. You can contribute with any amount to The Kids Fund, c/o The Capital Times, PO Box 8060, Madison WI 53708 or by going online to thekidsfund.org.
