To our KW Family,
KW Cares had a historic year in 2021! Your generous donations helped us reach more KW Family members than ever before. In 2021, we awarded 69% more grants than the previous year. Moreover, we gave out $5.7 million in grants and disaster relief—a 46% increase from 2020!
And behind the scenes this past year, we concentrated on improving our internal systems and processes to serve you better. We upgraded technology and hired professional staff in positions that had not previously existed. As we move into this New Year, we are excited for even greater changes to come.
None of this could have happened without the incredible support of our donors. Your generosity is the driving force behind the life-changing opportunities you make possible for our KW Family members. You have our heartfelt gratitude for making it an incredible year.
Here’s to a sensational 2022!
