About Us

History of Kids' Chance

Robert Clyatt, a workers’ compensation attorney from Valdosta, Georgia, founded the first Kids’ Chance organization in 1988. In 2007, the national organization, Kids’ Chance of America, was formed to create, assist and support organizations throughout the United States with this simple purpose: raise money to provide scholarships for the children of workers seriously injured or killed on the job.

Kids’ Chance of Wisconsin is a nonprofit organization, created in 2012 to provide educational opportunities and scholarships for the children of workers seriously injured or killed on the job in the State of Wisconsin.

Scholarship Eligibility

Students whose parent’s on-the-job injury resulted in death or serious disabilities and have been financially affected are eligible. Each applicant must meet the approval of the academic selection committee.

Funding

All funds raised support the children of Wisconsin workers. Scholarships are supported by donations from individuals, groups, organizations, companies, foundations, and from special activities organized by volunteers for Kids’ Chance of Wisconsin.

Mission

Our mission as an organization is to provide educational scholarships to the children of Wisconsin workers who have been seriously or fatally injured in work-related accidents.

Vision

Kids’ Chance of Wisconsin believes we can make a significant difference in the lives of all children affected by workplace injuries by helping them achieve their educational goals.

Board of Directors

Kids’ Chance of Wisconsin was founded and is operated by a team of dedicated volunteers, many of whom work regularly with the issues of workplace injuries or workers’ compensation in their professional roles.
