Kiwanis Children’s Fund

Helping your club or district with fundraising plans, project funding and foundation management.

TIP: Proofread your grant application before you submit to the Kiwanis Children’s Fund 

My tip is to find someone to proofread and review your grant application before it is submitted.  Having a “second eye” helps to identify spelling and grammatical errors in the document. Ask the reader to go beyond that level of review and highlight anything that is unclear, inconsistent or not fully addressed in the application. 

Tip from Robert McClelland, secretary of the Kiwanis Club of Alcoa, Tennessee, who wrote a successful grant application for the Pediatric Medicine Support Grant for the club’s Access to Complete Pediatric Rehabilitation Care project. 

We presented Blount Memorial Hospital with a check for US$9,000 ($8,000 from The Children’s Fund grant and $1,000 from the club). The presentation of the check was at the hospital’s pediatric rehabilitation unit. Several of the therapists as well as two members of the Blount Memorial Hospital Foundation were on hand. This photo was taken in one of the therapy rooms.
