Rubin for Kids is a nonprofit devoted to recognizing and rewarding the achievement of personal goals at school, at home, or in the community. In this sense, the program is both achievement-centered, and need-based. We distribute Post High School Scholarships and Youth Achievement Awards to youth and young adults in Dane County, WI. Not only are we a 100% volunteer based organization but since there are almost no administrative costs, every dollar contributed goes to help a deserving area youth.
