Raising money for worthwhile causes is an important part of Kiwanis. Our club distributes all funds raised back into the community in several different ways.
1) Service Leadership Programs – We support our SLPs by helping fund their initiatives and their attendance at leadership development conventions and events.
2) Materials for Service Projects – Club members enjoy hands-on service projects and we use funds to cover costs of materials used in those projects.
3) Local and Worldwide Kiwanis Initiatives – We provide donations to the Kiwanis International Foundation and Capital District Foundation to support causes such as eliminating maternal/neonatal tetanus.
4) Charitable Donations – We have been able to provide donations to various organizations that operate locally, such as the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Virginia and Our Daily Bread’s holiday sponsor-a-family program.
