    OPPORTUNITIES to contribute The Kiwanis International Foundation is commi�ed to raising funds to advance the many programs developed by Kiwanis International. It is the philanthropic support of generous Kiwanians that allows the Foundation to serve children worldwide.

    US$35 Million Endowment campaign The Foundation is building up the endowment, which, once the US$35 million campaign goal is reached, will begin to generate US$1.75 million annually to provide grants and aid to children and youth. The “You Can Make A Difference” endowment fundraising campaign will ensure the future growth of Service Leadership Programs, provide grants to clubs and districts, and provide funding for future needs. There are many ways you can help financially:

    ANNUAL DONATIONS Kiwanis Children’s Fund Kiwanis members can distinguish themselves annually by making one gi�, or a series of gi�s, totaling US$100 or more to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund. Such gi�s help fund the needs of children around the Kiwanis world through the Foundation’s grants program.

    Annual Club Gift The Annual Club Gi�, conducted during each Kiwanis year, provides the Foundation with its primary source of unrestricted income. These funds help determine which programs the Foundation can support.

    Children are at the heart of the Kiwanis International Foundation. Its mission is to assist Kiwanis International in serving the children of the world.

    The Kiwanis International Foundation was established in 1939. At the time, Kiwanis International, which was founded in 1915, was preparing to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

    Kiwanian Walter Zeller envisioned a strong Foundation, so he kicked off the Foundation’s first fundraiser by donating 25 silver US dollars. The auction of those coins ne�ed US$625 for the new Foundation, which today has grown to a multimillion-dollar organization that helps Kiwanis clubs serve children around the world.

    Children throughout the world suffer from hunger, abuse, neglect, and improper or substandard medical care. The Kiwanis International Foundation has the opportunity and responsibility to unite the members of the Kiwanis family to ease the suffering of children around the world.

NineZero, which stands for nine months—zero alcohol, provides education to young people to help them avoid this hazardous behavior.

    • Kiwanis Club of Des Plaines, Illinois; Shoe/Boot Project: The Kiwanis Club has provided shoes or boots at no cost to more than 600 local schoolchildren over the past 6 years. This grant will allow the club to continue to support this growing project.
