The Florida Kiwanis Foundation is the fund raising entity of the Florida District of Kiwanis International with the objective to provide an endowment fund to which clubs and individual members can contribute gifts and bequests.
Because of significant growth, more funds are needed to ensure the continued success of the youth programs that teach leadership skills – all vital to the future of Kiwanis youth.
The Florida Kiwanis Foundation financially supports CKI clubs, Key clubs, Builder’s clubs, K-Kids and Aktion clubs. The Florida Kiwanis Foundation also provides seed money for other projects identified by Kiwanis clubs and Kiwanis divisions within the Florida District, including funds for disaster relief.
The Florida Kiwanis Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees. One Trustee is elected from each division within the Florida district. They serve for a two year term on a staggered basis.
The Board of Trustees elects six Administrative Officers of the Foundation. These officers serve for a one year term.
The Board of Trustees, with advice of legal and financial counsel oversees the process of raising, investing, and distributing funds to ensure that donor gifts receive proper attention and are used for intended purposes.
