  • MARCH OF DIMES:MARCH FOR BABIES

    A baby’s first steps are one of the most precious moments in life and the March of Dimes believes every baby deserves to take that first step. Take your own first steps by joining March for Babies and make sure more babies get that chance.

    Join Builders Club and the Kiwanis International family in walking together for stronger, healthier babies. March for Babies is a family-friendly event where the community comes together to raise money to support research, services, education and advocacy in the fight against prematurity, birth defects and infant mortality.

    Advisors, find your local March for Babies event and register online at marchforbabies.org. Invite your Builders Club members, friends & family to join you – and you can raise money online, offline and as a team. Use our Student Guide for great ideas; and have fun! Thanks for your support of healthy babies.

  • Foundation grants add some power to your project

    Kiwanis International Foundation grants help clubs meet the needs of children. Sometimes those children are in your same Kiwanis district and sometimes in the opposite hemisphere. These grants help clubs reach their service-project goals that may otherwise be beyond their financial ability.
    Does your club have a project that could use additional funding? Consider applying for a Kiwanis International Foundation grant.
    Here’s what you need to know:
    ●    Grant applications are accepted year-round.
    ●    Applications postmarked by November 15, 2011 are reviewed at the January Board meeting, and applications postmarked by April 15, 2012 are reviewed at the June Board meeting each year.
    ●    Applicants are notified of the Board’s decision by letter within 30 days of the meeting.
    In order to be considered for a grant, your project should follow certain guidelines. Learn more about these grants and the amazing work that’s been funded on the Foundation website.
