Your donation helps us give kids with disabilities the gift of being a kid again—and the hope for a promising future. When you make an annual contribution of $1,000 or more to Kennedy Krieger Institute, you’ll also give yourself the gift of great company as an automatic inductee to our special donor group, the Kennedy Krieger Society.

Together, we can move mountains for children with special needs...why not take the first step today?
