How to Help

Who says that you cannot have a positive impact on this world? Your donation today can make a difference in the life of a child. Funds collected by the Capital District Kiwanis Foundation are strategically used to make the largest impact on our biggest priority: the children of the world.

Club Giving

Club Giving is a minimum of $3 per member based on the October 1 membership roster. This program should not be confused with the annual Kiwanis Children Fund.

This can be done several ways: by check; gift of appreciated stocks or other financial investments assets, or a bequest in a Will, Trust or Estate Plan. A contributor receives the satisfaction that they are contributing to maintaining a legacy of Kiwanis support for the Capital District Kiwanis K-Kids, Builders, Key Club and CKI organizations; also a Founder’s Society Neck Medallion Ribbon, Engraved Shadow Box Display Case, and a lapel Founder’s Society pin.
