Each year, Geeks for Kids builds custom cars for kids with movement disabilities; these cars are gifts to the kids and their families; they pay nothing.

With your support, these kids can grow and learn by exploring their world.  Whether through monetary gifts, in-kind donations or volunteering, corporate sponsors like you make Geeks for Kids – as well as all of LEARN’s other programs – possible.  Sponsorships cover the cost of the cars, the parts, the facility usage and other event costs like t-shirts, meals and awards.

By sponsoring Geeks for Kids, you position your firm as a community leader and a great place to work – especially for super geeks.  And, 100% of the money raised helps kids.
