Founder Gage Martin
4 Kids by Kids Foundation was founded by Gage Martin in his freshman year of high school. He envisioned a charity that would give back to the children and their families in the greater Oklahoma City area after a school project he completed highlighted the plight of at-risk youth in Oklahoma. He wanted a venue to give back both monetarily, and volunteer opportunities for teens in our community. With so many hurdles for Oklahoma youth, Gage saw the need to get involved personally to help his home and community. A kid himself steadfast and focused on helping other kids. Gage started this foundation aimed at improving the quality of life for kids and their families that are in need.
