KDF’s professionally-managed Endowment Fund exists to fund KDF’s programs, such as grants and scholarships. The Fund is the result of both club and individual contributions, as described below.
KDF General Grant Program
Kiwanis Club service projects and programs which promote the ideals, goals and objectives of Kiwanis International, our District, and which have a community- wide, county, division or district-wide scope benefiting multiple individuals are eligible for consideration.
All applications must strictly conform to all KDF policies/ procedures to be considered. Funds are limited; thus KDF funding commitments are made for one year.
Recently Awarded Grants
