How to Donate

You have a chance to make a difference, to give a gift to a community of children that spend summers at KBIA learning new skills, gaining new experiences, and making lifelong friendships. No donation is too small, and all contributions go towards your choice of scholarships, facilities, and/or the general fund:

  • Scholarships: Help us keep the spirit of summer alive for children who are unable to attend KBIA without assistance. For every $500 donated to the KBIA scholarship fund, we are able to invite a child to attend KBIA for a four week scholarship! Each year we have traditionally offered 20 to 25 children the opportunity to experience a KBIA summer -- free of charge and discreetly issued. The impact of a summer spent swimming, sailing, and just "being a kid" has a lasting impression.
  • Facilities: Our unique facility is located at the base of a small peninsula known as Lord's Point between Mother's Beach and a sheltered cove. Keeping up with building and property repairs, updates, and improvements is a constant project. We focus on making the campus safe, convenient, and enabling our classes to be the most they can be!
  • General: Let us decide! This donation fund can be accessed for a multitude of projects for the benefit of KBIA summer enrichment activities.
