George K Scholarship Fund and Gear Giveaway

Created in 2013 to honor former board member, George Kiesewetter, the George K Scholarship Fund & Gear Giveaway provides Passports, travel vouchers, and new and gently used equipment to 5 Maine kids annually to help them learn a new winter sport. George has always wanted to get outdoor equipment into the hands of kids who need it most, and with the help of George’s family, friends, and colleagues, WinterKids helped to make this wish a reality.


This fund supports 5 children each year to try one of five winter sports in the WinterKids Passport:

  • Downhill Skiing
  • Cross-Country Skiing
  • Snowshoeing
  • Ice Skating
  • Snow Tubing


Applicants must be a Maine 5th, 6th or 7th grader.
