Our Mission

Our mission is to raise, manage, and distribute funds to support programs of Ohio District Kiwanis family organizations for the improvement of the lives of children and families.

Support the children of Ohio by making a donation to your Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation. Consider using part of your stimulus check. Any amount will help ODKF provide grants and support for Kiwanis Kids programs

Our Impact this Kiwanis Year

  • Children and Families Helped by Projects Funded by ODKF 2020-21

    222,425

  • Number of Club Advised Fund accounts in the Foundation

    37

  • 36 KARES grants awarded

    $27,250

To lead a fulfilled life, being healthy is about much more than just the physical. It involves your mental well-being, too. 

You don’t have to choose just one cause or organization to support. You can provide support for various causes and various organizations. Take the time to figure out what feels right for you and your own goals for doing good in the world.

    Extending Our Ohio Kiwanis Impact

    The Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation is committed to assisting Ohio Kiwanis Clubs in improving the lives of children and families in Ohio. The work of our foundation helps our Kiwanis family of programs change children’s lives, impact communities, and nurture the next generation—often in ways that would otherwise remain beyond the resources of our local Kiwanis clubs.
    Join us today to help us improve the lives of children and families in Ohio.
