New grant recipients announced

Aug 22, 2016
In July 2016, the Kiwanis International Foundation board approved grants for five new projects.

Our foundation awards grants to the Kiwanis family in support of our common purpose—to serve the children of the world. The types of projects we fund vary in size, depth and scope, which you will see from recently chosen projects below.

A club in Romania is helping children with autism through sensory integration. The club is building a sensory room, which is proven to be therapeutic for children and adults with sensory processing disorders, like autism.    

Kiwanis members in the Pacific Northwest District are bringing the joy of play to children of all abilities. The barrier-free playground will significantly eliminate physical barriers that are often found in many parks. Children and adults with developmental disabilities will be able to play, interact and engage to their fullest individual capacity.

Around the world, the Kiwanis family is changing children’s lives. Donors to the Kiwanis International Foundation help make that happen. For that, we say thank you.

Below is a list of projects made possible through the generosity of our donors and the hard work of Kiwanis clubs:

  • Butte Kiwanis Club, Montana District – Kiwanis Children's Sunshine Camp
