The Kids-N-Hope Foundation has announced $562,500 in annual contributions to support its mission in funding music therapy and child life services through organizations and local area hospitals, including Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Music Therapy Program. Since its inception more than 25 years ago, the foundation has raised and donated over $3.1 million for pediatric therapy programs in the Philadelphia region, including more than $2.8 million to CHOP.
The Kids-N-Hope Foundation distributes thousands of dollars to local area hospitals at the end of each year to continue supporting its mission. This year, other organizations receiving donations from the foundation included CORA Services, Special People In Northeast Inc., Catholic Community Services, Federation Early Learning Services and KenCrest.
“American Heritage and the foundation made a commitment to make a difference in the lives of children over 25 years ago,” said Bruce K. Foulke, founder and chairman of the Kids-N-Hope Foundation and president and CEO of American Heritage Credit Union. “I am so proud of the work our volunteers and Board of Directors have done this past year. I am excited for the upcoming year’s fundraising opportunities for all of our beneficiaries, and look forward to fulfilling the foundation’s pledge to donate at least $1.9 million in additional funds to CHOP over the next five years.”
