Start A Snowball was started after the founders were inspired by what their 7 year old son was able to do when he was moved by a cause, and was given the support he needed to get his project off the ground. One of our main goals is to support kids that want to take on their own community service project through grants.  We are pleased to highlight the projects we have supported with grants, the projects that are currently ongoing, and some projects that are approved and pending funding. You can help by donating to Start A Snowball. This will give us the funds needed to fund the kids community service projects that are pending funding below, and to continue to fund projects and help kids do good.

Help us by donating today to help us fund these Kids’ and Other Kids’ Community Service Projects:

There are so many kids out there that want to do good and make a difference in their world. Help us support these and other kids’ community service projects through our grants. Your donation can help kids like these see the power that they can have to change the world, and help build a generation of givers that have the power to fight problems facing our world in a way that has never been done before.
