Congratulations grant recipients

Mar 19, 2016
During its meeting in February, the Kiwanis International Foundation board approved grants for 17 projects.

Our foundation has always supported the Kiwanis family. That’s why our board approved three grants to Kiwanis’ Service Leadership Programs including the 2016 Aktion Club Training and Leadership Conference, Circle K International’s 2016 Leadership Academy and program support and scholarship funds for 2016 Key Leader.

Many grant-funded projects focus on building or improving play areas for children. From East Fresno, California to Caledonia, Michigan, children will have safe places to play thanks to the generosity of the Kiwanis family.

Other clubs are improving the lives of children through backpack programs. Clubs fill bags with nutritious meals for children in need. Thanks to the support of our foundation, fewer children are at risk of hunger.

Around the world, the Kiwanis family is changing children’s lives. Donors to the Kiwanis International Foundation help make that happen. Below is a list of projects made possible through the generosity of our donors and the hard work of Kiwanis clubs.
