Your Kiwanis Legacy

Jul 08, 2014
As a Kiwanian, serving the children of the world has been a significant part of your life’s work. Why not make Kiwanis part of your permanent legacy?

By including the Kiwanis International Foundation in your will or estate plans, you create a legacy of serving the children of the world that lasts forever. You extend your Kiwanis impact in perpetuity.

A bequest to the Kiwanis International Foundation goes to support the Kiwanis International Foundation endowment, which produces funds each year to support important Kiwanis club, district and district foundation projects through grants.

It’s an opportunity to make sure that the mission you care about today will continue into the future. Essentially, it’s leaving the gift of your Kiwanis values to future generations. And if you decide to proceed with this, please let us know so that we can thank you today for the gift that is to come.

For more information, please contact manager of major and planned giving Steve Hinson at shinson@kiwanis.org or +317-217-6234.

To include the Kiwanis International Foundation in your estate, simply add the following sample bequest language:

GENERAL BEQUEST:

I give (dollar amount, percentage of residual estate, or description of property) to the Kiwanis International Foundation, 3636 Woodview Trace, Indianapolis, IN 46268, to be used for its exempt purposes.

(Note:  A residuary bequest is used to convey to the nonprofit all or a percentage thereof of one’s property, after all debts, taxes, expenses and other bequests have been paid. The Kiwanis International Foundation encourages you to consult with your attorney, accountant or other personal advisor about a residuary bequest and to consult with our foundation in advance when you anticipate bequeathing tangible assets and/or real property.)
