A “Guardian” is a protector or guard; often, a keeper for children who are unable to protect themselves. Dottie’s legacy of caring and giving to children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned can be supported by joining The Guardian Society.

In 2013 A Kid’s Place lost its founder and visionary Dottie Berger MacKinnon. In her honor and memory, we launched The Guardian Society, an Annual Giving Program, ensuring that foster children are treated with the care and dignity they deserve.

Generous philanthropic support is crucial to the success of A Kid’s Place. With extraordinary commitment from our donors we are able to give foster children the resources they need. Through your contributions, you are a guardian to our children and make an immediate impact to the brothers and sisters living at A Kid’s Place. By being part of The Guardian Society, you are supporting Dottie Berger MacKinnon’s vision of caring and giving to children who have been abused, neglected, and abandoned.
