Endowment gifts: an impact that lasts forever

The work you've done as a Kiwanian will resonate for many years to come. An endowment operates much the same way: you give the gift of Kiwanis to future generations.

When you make a gift to our foundation’s endowment, that gift is invested. The proceeds of the investments help fund Kiwanis International Foundation grants that support Kiwanis-family service projects in local communities throughout the world—as well as Service Leadership Programs such as Key Leader, Leadership Academy, CKI and Key Club International. As the endowment grows, so do the proceeds from the investments, providing a sustainable long-term funding flow.

You can even establish your own named endowment fund with the Kiwanis International Foundation. Named endowment opportunities are available for gifts of US$25,000 or more and can provide restricted or unrestricted support to the foundation. And remember, donors who reach $25,000 or more during their lifetime join the highest level of foundation giving, the Founders Circle.
