Vision Care for Needy Children

Apr 24, 2013

Vision Care Activity January - March 2013

From January 1st to March 31st 2013, the KEX Kids Fund received $11,514 from businesses, foundations, individuals, and service organizations. These funds include $2,380 in corporate sponsorships for the May 19th golf tournament.  Most of our operating expenses for 2013 are pledged and collected during our annual Thanksgiving Fundraiser.  We received $102,504 during our November 2012 fundraiser to be used for our $190,000 budget for 2013.  Funds are kept in one account and are used for both of our Hearing Care and Vision Care Programs.

 Vision Care Program Services expenses for the first quarter of 2013 were $17,670.   The KEX Kids Fund processed applications for 268 children during January, February, and March.  The KEX Kids Fund children received vision care services valued at nearly $70,000.  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 our reports as we receive them.
