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.

The Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation had a very successful Kiwanis Aid, Relief, Economic Security (KARES) Program. A program that provided Kiwanis Clubs grants of up to $1000 to support their community service projects. One more example of how your Foundation uses its funds to promote Ohio Kiwanis community service programs. Consider donating today to help your Foundation grow to serve more club projects.

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

    35

  • 36 KARES grants awarded

    $27,250

There are those who enjoy crunching numbers, and those who would love to be doing anything else. With March underway and April just around the corner, you may be dreading a certain time of year that’s all but looming—tax time.

Whether donating money or time, giving back has been shown to make a positive impact that goes far beyond the initial act of giving.
