Donor recognition

The Kiwanis Children's Fund appreciates the support you give. And we honor the difference you make. When you give, we extend your Kiwanis impact—and our deepest thanks.

After all, generosity is an important part of our members’ lives. That’s why recognizing your kindness is important. The Children's Fund celebrates gifts in several ways.


  • George F. Hixson Fellowship for an unrestricted gift of US$1,000 (named in honor of the first Kiwanis International president)
  • Walter Zeller Fellowship for a gift of US$1,250 or more to The Eliminate Project (paid one time or over two years)
  • Kiwanis Leadership Society for an unrestricted gift of US$250, or to honor someone else with induction into the society
  • Tablet of Honor for an unrestricted gift of US$2,000 or more to recognize another person or group

Founders Circle

When your gifts amount to US$25,000 or more, you become a part of this unique group of donors. This recognition can also be awarded to couples.

Planned giving societies

When you make a planned gift, you become part of an exclusive group. For a documented gift of US$10,000 or more, you’re inducted into the Heritage Society. And if your planned gifts total US$50,000 or more, you become a member of the Mary and Bo Shafer Legacy Society.
