What We Do

KIPP Charlotte is a free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public charter school serving over 850 students in grades K-8 and 650 high school and college alumni. KIPP Charlotte serves communities that are traditionally underserved and marginalized in education. The mission of KIPP Charlotte is to prepare all of our students to excel in the nation’s finest high schools and colleges by cultivating the habits of mind, character skills, and knowledge necessary for their success. We provide an education that will enable our students to lead full lives and empower our graduates to be the future leaders of Charlotte and agents of change in the world beyond.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

There are 1,500 students and alumni who are counting on us. Our dedicated teachers and staff have called over 700 families to assess their needs at this time. Here's how you can help:

A donation of $500 helps buy a Chromebook & cover for one family. We need at least 150 Chromebooks.
A donation of $300 buys a set of books for 30 students.
A donation of $100 provides a meal for 1 family of 4.
A donation of $60 buys a WiFi hotspot for one family.
A donation of $25 helps cover postage and printing costs to mail learning materials.

Remember, your impact is DOUBLED if you act BEFORE the end of the month. Let's work together to maximize this matching gift so KIPP Charlotte can receive $100,000 to support KIPPsters now. It's critical that our students have the resources they need and can continue to make progress for the remainder of the academic year. Donate at https://bit.ly/395jsTE
