Meet your 2016–17 leaders

Oct 24, 2016
District chairs are key to the success of the Kiwanis Children’s Fund. They are passionate advocates of our mission and constant communicators of our core values. They build and strengthen our relationships with the Kiwanis family.

Just as the Children’s Fund has district chairs, The Eliminate Project has district advocates. These leaders are available to support clubs and individuals and share important updates from the campaign—and they play an essential role in fulfillment efforts at the district level.

These leaders are resources for members within their districts. Not sure who represents you? Find out below. Or download the 2016–17 Kiwanis Children’s Fund directory.
