Club Advised Funds

Clubs may invest their funds in the investment pool of the Foundation as a Club Advised Fund or subfund. This allows the Club Advised Fund to receive tax deductible donations under the 501(c)(3) IRS provisions of the Foundation. The Foundation also handles financial reporting to the club, the State of Ohio and the IRS. 

The minimum amount required to establish a Club Advised Fund is $5,000. The club pays 1% annually for the administration of the fund under $100,000 and .75% for a fund over $100,000. The club also pays investment manager’s fees. The club may distribute funds for their projects at any time upon approval of the Foundation Board. Distributions are made to qualified charitable tax exempt organizations.

Contact the Executive Director or Treasurer for more details about establishing a Club Advised Fund for your Kiwanis Club. They are available to meet with your club and board members to answer all questions that you may have.

How to Establish a Kiwanis Club Advised Fund:

  1. Request a meeting with the Foundation Executive Director to review the agreement form of the Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation. 
  2. Have your Board of Directors and membership vote to approve the establishment of the Fund. 
  3. Select two individuals who will be responsible for depositing and withdrawing monies from your fund. 
  4. You will be notified of your approval by the Ohio District Foundation Board of Directors 
  5. Once approved you will be asked to deposit an initial investment of $5,000 into your Fund. 
  6. You may begin to collect funds and make deposits in your Fund with the Foundation
