Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund Launches a $1,000,000 Capital Campaign

Feed Our Rural Kids (FORK) is excited to announce the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund’s $1,000,000.00 capital campaign.

The expansion of FORK’s organizational vision has led us to create the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund. We see it as a legacy of hope for generations of kids to come. Through this capital campaign, the children who need food today, as well as those who will be hungry tomorrow, can be assured of that promise of hope for their futures.

“That is the wonderful thing about the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund, we have built it to meet both those needs. The needs of today’s children are funded in part by an annual distributions of fund assets. While the sustainability of the organization’s future efforts are secured by growth of the fund’s portfolio conservatively invested over time.”

Nic Weight - Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Committee Chairmen

Feed Our Rural Kids (FORK) was formed to address the critical day to day nutritional needs of children from food insecure homes across eastern and central Vilas County.

The Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund was created to meet the chronic long-term challenges faced by the organization in addressing ongoing childhood food insecurity.

A simple way for you to understand this relationship is that FORK stands for food security for children and the Tomorrow’s Kids Endowment Fund will stand as financial security for FORK.

“Investments in our children’s future are not made with the expectation of immediate return. Rather they are made in hopes of changing the arc of their destiny."

Perry Pokrandt – President of Feed Our Rural Kids

This endowment provides FORK an opportunity to create a sustainable future. That is a reality where the organization's future boards of directors can continue the mission that FORK originally envisioned; but do so with a confidence in the sustainability of their cause.
