Dream.  Hope.  Believe.

Kids’ Chance of Missouri is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that provides post-high school scholarships to children of Missouri workers killed or seriously injured on the job.  Kids' Chance believes that we can make a difference in the lives of all children affected by a workplace injury by helping them achieve their educational goals. 


In the last three school years, we issued almost $500,000 in scholarships!

You can make a difference by making a donation, sponsoring and attending our events, or sponsoring an entire scholarship!

**Donors may sponsor a named scholarship by pledging an annual contribution in the amount of that year's scholarships -

typically $4,000 - $5,000!  Student & donor contact information is exchanged and a mentor-mentee relationship is encouraged.**  

Bob Keefe Honored with the Robert M. Clyatt Award

Longtime Leader Remains Actively Committed to the Kids’ Chance Mission


Robert Keefe, one of the Kids’ Chance community’s longest advocates and leaders, is the recipient of the 2020 Robert M. Clyatt Distinguished Service Award. Named for Kids’ Chance founder Bob Clyatt, the award embodies his passion for helping children impacted by a parent’s workers’ compensation injury or death obtain the funds needed to advance their education.

“For the past 22 years, Bob Keefe has embodied the mission of Kids’ Chance,” said Kevin Turner, President of Kids’ Chance of America. “His work and contributions cover both his home state of Missouri but moreover, the creation of Kids’ Chance of America, which is the driving force behind Bob Clyatt’s vision to reach more kids by leveraging a national network.”


Kids’ Chance of Missouri welcomes and appreciates your involvement, commitment and partnership to our organization through donations and volunteer service. Kids’ Chance cannot accomplish its mission without the support of people like YOU!


Our events raise funds to provide scholarships for tuition, educational materials and living expenses for education of children of workers who have been seriously injured or killed in work-related accidents.
