Who We Are
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.

Annual Member Contributions
We appreciate the spirit of volunteerism and support for the Foundation by all members of the Kiwanis Club and hope you will help us reach 100% participation in our 2020-2021 pledge drive. Please send your annual contribution to the Foundation by clicking on the Donation button below.
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.
Funds of the San Diego Kiwanis Club Foundation must be used for charitable, educational, religious or other youth related activities, as provided by the Bylaws of the Kiwanis Club and the Foundation, and must also be consistent with provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and the California Revenue and Taxation Code to preserve the Foundation’s tax-exempt status. These are general guidelines – reasonable variations may be considered by the Foundation Trustees.
