With underwriting from corporations, foundations, and individual donors, Sydney Paige works with schools and community-based non-profits nationwide to arrange local giveaways of our high-quality, kid-approved backpacks, full sets of grade-appropriate school supplies, brand new books, art kits, mental health kits, and so much more.
In all that we do, we maintain a laser focus on self-worth. That's why we're so passionate about quality, the "little things" (like notes of encouragement), and letting kids choose their own backpacks and books. All of this is absolutely necessary in order to have a real and sustainable impact.
To date, we’ve been able to help more than 190,000 students!
KIDS get excited about going to school and using their new learning tools.
Being upscale and trendy, our backpacks build confidence & last.
PARENTS love their kids’ enthusiasm and are grateful that their childrens‘ needs are being met.
Donations alleviate the shame parents feel for not being able to provide for their kids in this way.
TEACHERS appreciate that they don’t need to pay out-of-pocket to supply students for class.
Educators are able to focus on teaching, not on the stress of filling in supply gaps.
NON-PROFITS value that our partnership helps stretch strained resources.
Services can be upgraded without costing staff time, volunteer recruitment, or additional funding.
SPONSORS enjoy the impact they have on the communities where they live, work, and do business.
Partners value the branding and employee engagement opportunities offered.

"We received a donation from Sydney Paige and got a wide variety of styles that were perfect for all ages from 7-18!
Every kid walked away happy and so excited for their backpack.
Not only were all of the bags stylish and cool, but the quality of the bags are AMAZING - these kids will be wearing these backpacks for years."

"What a difference these backpacks and supplies make to our kids! My class homework completion rate went from a very sad 33% to 100% and holding!
The kids LOVE their backpacks! They feel special and BELIEVED IN because of this gift. As a teacher, seeing my kids more engaged in class & excited to do their work is the best gift of all. This is the foundation to great success!"
