Disaster relief

There are times when the needs of families and children require an immediate response. The Kiwanis International Foundation’s disaster relief program gives you a way to help. Our foundation provides emergency and disaster-relief grants to Kiwanis-family districts and clubs responding to disasters in their communities.

Kiwanis-family clubs and members may be invited to make gifts that will be used solely for disaster relief. Those donations support the grants that allow Kiwanians to feed, clothe and shelter children and families affected by catastrophe.

How to apply

The Kiwanis International Foundation makes emergency grants in response to applications by Kiwanis-family clubs and districts in the affected areas. To help ensure prompt response, clubs and districts applying for an emergency grant should send an email specifying the requested amount (up to US$5,000) and a detailed description of how the grant funds would be used to grants@kiwanis.org.
