December Reflections

As we approach the end of 2020, we’ve been reflecting on the work we’ve done this year. And while it’s been a really tough time for all of us, we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished.


Even in this turbulent time, we’ve delivered on our promise to deliver free STEAM enrichment to kids who need it. And we’re excited to be launching a number of new STEAM clubs in underserved areas in the new year.  In our increasingly technological world, it’s vitally important to prepare all students–regardless of race, gender or zip code–with the STEAM skills they’ll need to succeed in the 21st century. This remains our core mission and driving force. 


We also provided vital assistance to hundreds of families in Prince William County devastated by COVID-19. We started by delivering groceries and school supplies, and then transitioned into offering rent, mortgage and utility assistance to local families. In total, we provided 1,000 grocery deliveries, 10,000 school supplies, and more than half a million dollars in COVID assistance to struggling families.


But we haven’t done it alone!  Our success has been made possible by the incredible support of our volunteers, donors and cheerleaders, partnerships with The Alliance of Greater Prince William, Prince William County Schools’ Social Workers, C4Strong,  Out of the Blue RestaurantSalsa SweetsYour CBD Store – GainesvilleHappy Paws Pet Nanny and The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation.


None of this would be possible without your help!  We deeply and genuinely appreciate every person who has volunteered, donated and spread the word about the Kuma Foundation.  THANK YOU and Happy Holidays from our family to yours!
