HOW TO HELP

When natural disasters strike, the Kiwanis family responds. Whether it’s raising money or collecting supplies, Kiwanians want to lend a hand. That’s who we are. Here are ways you and your club can help:

Donate to the Kiwanis Children's Fund
In the aftermath of a natural disaster, the Kiwanis Children's Fund is there to help Kiwanis clubs and districts meet the crucial and immediate needs of people in their communities. When you donate to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund’s Disaster Relief Program, you make sure the Kiwanis family can assist people who have been affected by hurricanes, tornadoes, typhoons, floods, wildfires and more. To donate to the Kiwanis Children's Fund, text "Aid" to 50155, click here or mail a check.

Apply for a grant
Is your club in a position to offer hands-on help? Kiwanis clubs and districts in the affected area can apply for a grant to address the immediate needs of victims in the wake of a natural disaster. The grants are typically used to purchase and distribute basic necessities such as food, bottled water, clothing/blankets, first aid supplies, cleaning supplies and toiletries. Kiwanis must lead the project or relief effort and may not hand over money to another agency, group or organization. Go to kiwanischildrensfund.org/disaster for more information on how to apply.
