Greetings Florida Kiwanis Foundation Members,

As concerns grow regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to take a moment to report on the functions of the Florida Kiwanis Foundation (FKF). We are following the advisement of the CDC, the Governor of Florida, and the Kiwanis District. As of today, the Kiwanis International Convention is still scheduled for June 2020. Please note that some of the activities have been canceled.

It is with great disappointment that we canceled our Trustee Training and we will be making a decision regarding offering an alternative training in the near future. Our top priority is the overall safety of our board members. We will continue to monitor the situation and we will communicate any impact on our upcoming events as timely as possible.

Even in this time of uncertainty, we want to express our gratitude for your continued service. We are extremely proud to have the opportunity to continue creating a legacy for children in the state of Florida.

FKF is honored to support the signature project of two Florida Kiwanis Clubs: Kiwanis Club of North Lakeland and the Kiwanis Club of Citrus Center! Both clubs received Matching Grants for $10,000! Earlier this month, our very own Dan Borba presented both grants at the celebration of the Kiwanis Cares for Kids Treehouse in Bonnet Springs Park. The fundraising goal of this project was $350,000! Your fundraising efforts made this project possible and because of you, this playground will make a difference for years to come! Projects and opportunities like these allow us to recognize the importance of our work: serving the children of Florida.

We also want to thank our Scholarship Committee and Chairman, Keith Forehand for reviewing and identifying nineteen recipients for this year’s J Walker Field Scholarships! We look forward to seeing these future leaders succeed in their educational endeavors.

Even in times like these, it is important to continue our work impacting the state of Florida through supporting Kiwanis Clubs, Divisions, and SLPs. We are honored to have such an amazing group of members.

 

Thank you again for your ongoing service,

 

James Wylie
