Worth noting is the unique benefit of giving to The Kroc Center. Membership dues and the annual Kroc endowment distribution fully fund community center operations. This allows donations to be directed specifically to outreach efforts because the facility, insurance, utilities and administration expenses are already covered. Your donations were leveraged to provide more than $1 million of impact in our small community.

2020 was a year of new partnerships and expanded services. Here are the projects our team were most proud of.
14,400 hours of labor were donated to Post Falls Food Bank, Panhandle Health, Second Harvest, and Kootenai County Office of Emergency Management.
$32,688 in wages were provided to part-time staff (their regular paycheck) during the COVID closure even if they were not able to work.
We were able to safely host weekly church services, 13 major events including the STEM Charter Academy graduation, and pledged $25,000 in waived rental fees to Christian Youth Theater, helping prevent them from closing.
800 individuals, ages 3 months to 89 years, were given a membership scholarship. This offers a life-line for single parents, veterans, homeless families, grandparents raising grandchildren and others carrying heavy burdens. When they need it the most, they are given daily access to heal their bodies, connect with others, and lift their spirits.
