NON-PROFIT PARTNERS

High Fives Foundation

highfivesfoundation.org

High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, based in Truckee, CA, became an official 501c.3 non-profit on January 19, 2009. Founded by Roy Tuscany, the Tahoe-based organization supporting the dreams of mountain action sports athletes by raising injury prevention awareness while providing resources and inspiration to those who suffer life-altering injuries.   

Kind Design works with High Fives throughout the year, setting up various fundraiser events, donating product for silent raffles and prize packages, doing pro-bono design work, presenting their B.A.S.I.C.S. program to middle / high schools, and much more. We devote most our philanthropic time to the High Fives Foundation.

First Decents

First Descents offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors a free outdoor adventure experience designed to empower them to climb, paddle and surf beyond their diagnosis, defy their cancer, reclaim their lives and connect with others doing the same.

Kind Design has donated substantial prizes for the silent auction at their First Descents Ball in 2015 and 2016, and we plan on donating to the 2017 Ball as well.  

Children's Global Alliance

childrensglobalalliance.org

Children’s Global Alliance is a 501(C)3 non-profit program based in Vail, Colorado. The organization was created in 2010 to fill the void of large-scale volunteer experiences for children ages 12-16. This most impressionable age group is capable of extraordinary things, yet rarely trusted with extraordinary opportunities. We cannot stress enough that this program is so much more than a travel experience. We provide a year-round mentorship program that focuses on creating the future leaders in our community. We promote and focus on character and integrity building, emotional maturity, decision making as a teenager and becoming responsible, educated and compassionate citizens, right here at home. This is a positive experience that provides our youth the opportunity to become truly selfless individuals.

Kind Design has been working with the Children's Global Alliance for many years, donating products for silent auctions, doing pro-bono design work, making t-shirts for events, donating products to bring overseas to orphanages they work at, and more.  We love what they are doing and how they get the children in the community involved, to help less fortunate children.

National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD)

The National Sports Center for the Disabled (NSCD) is one of the largest outdoor therapeutic recreation and adaptive sports agencies in the world, based out of Winter Park Resort and Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Colorado. The NSCD began in 1970 providing ski lessons for children with amputations for the Children’s Hospital of Denver. Each year more than 3,000 children and adults with disabilities participate in our programs to learn more about sports and themselves. With specially trained staff and volunteers, and its own adaptive equipment lab, the NSCD teaches a variety of year-round sports and activities to individuals with almost any physical, cognitive, emotional or behavioral diagnosis.

Kind Design has worked with the NSCD for several events, doing pro-bono design work, and donating product for giveaways and silent auctions.  The NSCD is doing amazing things and it aligns very well with our work with the High Fives Foundation. 

Make a Wish Foundation

wish.org

Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish® vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 37 minutes. We believe a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us and inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.

Kind Design created a campaign in 2012 to help raise money for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
