San Diego Kiwanis Club Foundation

The Kiwanis Club of San Diego works in concert with the San Diego Kiwanis Club Foundation, Inc. (the ‘Foundation’). The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) foundation incorporated in California that annually provides more than $180,000 to projects and organizations in the community.

The primary purpose of the San Diego Kiwanis Club Foundation is to provide a means for members and others to provide charitable contributions and to ensure those contributions are utilized in accordance with the Foundation’s guidelines as well as state and federal law.

Committee Budgets

Each year the Kiwanis Club committees prepare their annual budgets and these budgets are presented to the Kiwanis Club Board of Directors. The Club board then proposes a budget to the Foundation board to meet the committee requests.

The Foundation board reviews the charitable requests and approves those requests that meet the guidelines for appropriate use of those funds.

Generally, priority should be given to using funds for projects where the assistance of other agencies is not readily available.

– Guidelines For Use of Foundation Funds

To permit maximum use of funds granted, emphasis should be more on donations to groups and less on individuals.
