Our FROM WISH TO REALITY scholarship program was created to help support foster and
underprivileged youth participate in extracurricular activities in the community. BB4Kids raises
funds to go towards the scholarship program through cash donations and fundraiser events, then
partners with other community organizations and agencies to distribute the funds to the specific
youth population they serve.
Once funds have been raised, the BB4Kids Board meets and determines how much funding will be
set aside for each partner agency. The agencies are then notified of the amounts available to
them and present a list of "wishes" from their youths. BB4Kids is open to considering any type of
activity a child wishes to participate in which typically include sports, art, music, tutoring,
camps, classes and clubs.
BB4Kids works with many partner agencies including:
- Multnomah County Child Welfare - assisting in-home and out-of-home foster youth
- Clackamas County Child Welfare - assisting in-home and out-of-home foster youth
- Eastham Community Schools - assisting foster, low income and homeless youths
- Wilsonville School District - assisting low income youth receiving free or reduced fee lunch
- Canby School District - assisting low income youth receiving free or reduced fee lunch
Wish To Reality Policies and Procedures:
Building Blocks 4 Kids / Wish to Realty is referral based... all requests must be initiated by one of our authorized community organizations and agencies; we do not accept requests directly from families or individuals.
Our service area includes Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington counties.
School aged children must be registered in a school (K-12) within the districts we serve.
Under certain circumstances, we may be able to provide services for under school aged children.
Application forms must be completed online by the advocate (not the parents). Incomplete applications will not be processed; complete all questions including name and age of the child.
Private Lessons can not be funded so that we can provide for as many children as possible.
Checks for approved requests are mailed out twice a month (1st and 15th).
Please contact us at email@example.com if you are an agency with a need and desire to partner with BB4Kids.
