The Foundation Mission


The mission of the Ohio District Kiwanis Foundation is to raise, manage, and distribute funds to support programs of Ohio District Kiwanis family organizations for the improvement of lives of individuals.

Our Vision

Our vision is to extend your Kiwanis impact. We strive to make sure your gift helps children in many communities and in many ways. And we succeed by holding fast to a set of core values.

  • Stewardship. We are committed to meeting and sustaining donors’ confidence that our foundation will invest their contributions wisely and distribute them in keeping with the values inherent in Kiwanis

  • Transparency. We adhere to the Donor Bill of Rights to treat all constituents fairly and ethically and to be above board in all of our dealings.

  • Legacy. We give donors the opportunity to leave a lasting mark on the world.

  • Trust. Through the integrity of our actions, we seek to earn and maintain the trust of our Kiwanis family and all stakeholders. Your gifts reflect your hope for children’s lives—and your trust in us. So we strive to earn that trust. We share records and reports that document gifts, grants and the people we serve.


• The Focus is fundraising and providing grants to Ohio Kiwanis clubs that support Kiwanis Safe and Healthy Kids programs that emphasize Water safety, Bicycle Safety, Safe Home, and Safe Play.
