2016-2017 Community Service Grant Application Form 2016-2017 AED Grant Application Form       

     The Kiwanis District Foundation offers clubs the opportunity to apply for financial assistance for meaningful service projects in their communities, and for participation in the District Service Project - placing AEDs in every school within in the District.

Some helpful hints in the application process:

Grant applications should meet the basic requirements of the Foundation as stated in the Mission Statement: “To provide financial assistance for Kiwanis projects and programs within our District.”
 
Clubs must be "in good standing" with the District Foundation - that is, the club must have contributed to the Annual Club Gift Campaign for the current year, and with the minimal recommended amount - in 2016-2017, that would be $5 per member.
 
The District Foundation Board now offers two levels of Community Service Grants:  Level I up to $5,000 and Level II up to $1,000. These are "matching grants" in an amount of up to 75% of the total cost of the projects, up to the maximum amount awarded - typcally reimbursed after completion of the project.  The Foundation Board wants to assist clubs with their projects - but not to fund the entire effort. 
 
Level I Grant Applications will be received throughout the year, until the announced deadline for 2016-2017 of March 1, 2017.  The Foundation Board will make the decision on awarding these grants in April, 2017.  Level II Grant Applications will be received monthly, and the Foundation Board will make a decision on these grants at its monthly meetings.
 
The Foundation Board is looking to fund new projects. The grants approved will be a one-time funding as seed money or to enhance existing projects.
