Revamping District Grant Program

Nov 21, 2017

Each year the Kiwanis Children’s Fund awards short-term grants to qualifying Kiwanis districts. In the past, the amount of these grants was equal to five percent of the district’s total undesignated giving from the previous Kiwanis year. Beginning in 2017-18, we are excited to share that eligible districts can now apply for a grant equal to 15 percent of their undesignated giving.

Districts also have plenty of freedom to determine the best use of their grant. Grants can support activities within at least one of our cause areas: health, education or youth leadership development.

So remember, as the 2017-18 year gets underway, the more undesignated gifts that members and clubs in your district make, the larger district grant your district could receive next fall. You can check your district’s total giving throughout the year online.

Contact your Children’s Fund District Chair to see if your district qualifies for a grant for the 2017-18 year.
