So Many Ways to Give 

Whether you are an individual, family, or business, KIAI has a variety of ways that YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE in a child's life by giving them the gift of self-confidence and the ability to persevere as they face life’s many challenges. 


KIAI is a nonprofit organization that awards scholarships to families in need of financial assistance to help fund karate lessons. Aid is provided on the basis of financial need, the student’s dedication to the practice of karate, and the recommendations of instructors. Once selected, recipients are required to meet or exceed expectations for class participation, maintain academic excellence at school, and volunteer in the community in order to maintain their funding.

To date, KIAI has awarded over $120,000 in financial assistance to families throughout Washington County. The funding we receive from donors like you has enabled these children to reap the benefits of quality karate instruction and been instrumental in helping them overcome social, emotional, and academic challenges and grow into well-rounded, successful young men and women. 

The number of scholarship recipients KIAI can support depends solely on the generosity of people like you.  You can simply make a one-time donation now or consider supporting KIAI in a variety of ways. Just click any of the links to the right to learn how.


KIAI is currently supporting students at three southern Rhode Island dojos that have met our required standards of excellence in karate instruction. These include East Coast Karate in Richmond, Ichiban Karate & Fitness in Wakefield, and Innovate Karate in North Kingstown.

Why not consider signing yourself or your children up for classes at one of them today...
