The Kiwanis Children’s Fund launched a new Club Grant program on October 1, 2017. This revised program is designed with our clubs in mind, and we are very happy to share its exciting new features. Below are the top 10 new features of the revised Club Grant program.

  1. Guide to Club Grants: Clubs can find all the information they need to complete a club grant application in one place.
  2. Applicants have access to a library of supplemental online resources to assist with the grant application process.
  3. All materials have been translated in six languages.
  4. Club grant applications will now be submitted through our easy-to-use, online grant management system, Foundant.
  5. For visual learners, a new video demonstrates how to submit an application through Foundant.
  6. A new community-needs assessment teaches clubs how to gather data about their communities and use it to measure their impact.
  7. The application process is now broken into two steps: a Letter of Inquiry and the full grant application.
  8. Clubs can submit Letters of Inquiry year-round.
  9. Clubs will be contacted by Children’s Fund staff to discuss their project’s potential for funding, typically within two weeks of submitting a Letter of Inquiry.
  10. Funding decisions are made three times per year: June 1, October 1 and January 1.
