What is Kites for Kids?

Kites for Kids is a unique fundraising concept that allows our clients—children and youth in Allegheny County who are in the foster care system—to anonymously have a fun day learning and exploring at Carnegie Science Center alongside the community at large. Tables of games and activities, presented by our generous sponsors, are set up throughout the kid-friendly space for extra fun and the lobby is decorated with kites designed by our kids!

While 2020's event was virtual, typical years welcome thousands of families from Allegheny County and beyond to the Carnegie Science Center to raise awareness and much-needed resources to protect our most vulnerable citizens—abused and neglected children.

Why kites?

Kites symbolize the potential for a child to soar and a hope for a world full of happy childhoods.

Are you or your business interested in sponsoring this unique event?
