By investing in the KCI, you are providing crucial support that allows us to maintain our programs and continue to train hundreds of our region’s teachers so they can go back to the classroom and inspire their students.

Donations at all levels translate into meeting specific needs—whether it is supporting groups of teachers to attend the KCI’s year long programs, supporting one teacher, supplying technology, or supporting KCI operations.  Please contact us for more information on how you can allocate your gift to meet our most pressing needs.
