Dear Donors,

Thank you for helping us make this a successful year for the KEX Kids Fund and continuing our goal of providing vision care for all eligible children requesting our help!

 In 2014, your support helped us raise nearly $140,000 to provide both hearing and vision care for needy children in Oregon and SW Washington. Most of our operating expenses for 2014 are pledged and collected during our annual Thanksgiving Fundraiser. So far we have received $91,172 during our November 2013 fundraiser to be used for our $140,000 budget for 2015. We are very pleased with this support as the radio time for the fundraiser included only the four morning broadcasts and not the two afternoon commuting time broadcasts which have historically brought in $15,000 to $20,000 in pledges. Our funds are kept in one account and are used for both of our Hearing and Vision Care programs.

Vision Care Program Services expenses for 2014 were $56,561.95 and provided services for 852 children. The KEX Kids Fund children received vision care services valued at over $225,000. The 2014 total is slightly less than in 2013 as the Oregon Health Plan is impacting the addition of vision care to health insurance options for Oregon families.  We continue to be able to provide vision care services to all qualified children who request our help and have no other options for vision care. Our contact at the Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation, Kerith Vance, receives Thank You notes form children receiving KEX Kids Fund vision care which we will attach to this report when available.

Thank you again for helping us bring sight to needy children in Oregon and SW Washington.
