Extend your members’ impact through club giving

Jan 19, 2016

A new year brings new opportunities. Here’s a chance for your Kiwanis club to extend members’ impact through the Kiwanis Children’s Fund.

Every year, clubs around the world conduct fundraisers—from large community events to simple pancake breakfasts— to support our foundation’s Kiwanis Children’s Fund. Whether you’re renewing your annual commitment or making your first club gift to our foundation, we’re ready to put your gift to work by supporting projects close to Kiwanians’ hearts. These club gifts help fund grants to Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs as well as Kiwanis clubs, districts and district foundations.

Thanks to the generosity of Kiwanis members and clubs, the Kiwanis International Foundation board approved 41 grant projects supported by Kiwanis-family members in the 2014-2015 year.

Gifts from individuals, clubs and other entities to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund will be included in your club’s annual giving totals.

The Today Club program honors clubs that achieve a minimum US$10 per-member giving average during the Kiwanis administrative year, which runs from October 1 through September 30. Today Clubs are leaders within the district. Learn more about how your club can be honored as a Today Club.
