Capacity building mini-grant made possible by the Children’s Services Council of Broward County
Coral Springs, FL—KidSafe Foundation (www.kidsafefoundation.org) has received a grant of $3,000 from the Community Foundation of Broward to strengthen the organization’s community engagement strategies. This capacity building mini-grant was made possible by the Children’s Services Council of Broward County.
KidSafe Foundation will use the grant to implement a new customer relationship management (CRM) system. This software will help KidSafe manage and grow their relationships with the volunteers, donors, and supporters who help the organization advance in their mission to prevent child abuse and exploitation through education.
“Sadly, one in four girls and one in six boys are sexually assaulted by the time they’re 18 years old. KidSafe believes that 95% of child abuse and exploitation is preventable through education, which is why it is so important for KidSafe to continue bringing safety education programs to kids and adults in Broward County. We thank the Community Foundation of Broward for helping KidSafe keep Broward kids safe,” said Sally Berenzweig, KidSafe Foundation Co-founder.
KidSafe is a 501c3 nonprofit founded by Sally Berenzweig MEd, MA and Cherie Benjoseph LCSW – Child Safety Experts, Mental Health Professionals, Educators, Authors, Public Speakers and Moms on a mission to keep all children safe from child abuse, bullying and internet dangers.
