The newspapers pay all administrative costs but all other costs for print and online programs and services are made possible through donations from foundations, businesses and individuals. For example, Michigan K.I.D.S. prints and delivers more than 50,000 copies of Yak's Corner annually to metro Detroit area schools at a cost of 5 cents per copy - more than $72,000 yearly.

For $45 you can support Yak's Corner delivery for one classroom of 30 students but any donation - large or small - will make it possible for our nonprofit to continue to provide Michigan students with topical informational content that "writes up" to students.
