  • Save a baby a day through The Eliminate Project

    Maricel Busalin’s daughter stopped feeding and began to turn blue at five days old. Maricel had not been vaccinated for maternal and neonatal tetanus and during the birth at her home in the Philippines, the baby was infected. Maricel’s daughter suffered terrible pain and convulsions. No sound or touch could soothe her. Maricel could only watch as her baby died.


    Every 11 minutes, neonatal tetanus claims the life of a baby. But those deaths—and that pain—are preventable. Wake up each morning knowing you’ve helped save babies like Maricel’s by giving just US$1.80 a day. The Kiwanis family is on the verge of making history. Be part of it. Commit to saving lives every single day. Give now at www.TheEliminateProject.org/Baby. Then challenge others to do the same.

  • New guidelines to protect youth


    The Kiwanis Youth Protection Guidelines have been updated to reflect the changes the Kiwanis International Board passed in April, which became effective October 1, 2014. Updates include:


    ● Background checks for Kiwanis advisors are valid for no more than 10 years.
    ● If a Kiwanian learns of troubling behavior after an event, they are required to report the incident.
    ● Adults working with youth at Kiwanis International-sponsored events need to have a background check through Kiwanis International's provider. These include Key Leader weekends, the Key Club International convention, the Key Club Governor and Administrator Training Conference and the Key Club International Leadership Conference.
    ● All districts conducting background checks are required to follow the screening criteria stated in Kiwanis International Procedure 197 when determining if checks are clear.

    Review the updated Kiwanis Youth Protection documents and presentation at www.kiwanis.org/youthprotection today.

  • Fewer babies dying from tetanus

    The Kiwanis family’s efforts through The Eliminate Project are making a big difference. The number of babies dying from neonatal tetanus dropped 15 percent between 2010 and 2013, according to a new report by the Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group. One baby now dies every 11 minutes—with approximately 9,000 fewer babies dying each year. But 134 newborns still die every day.

    Find out Kiwanis’ latest fundraising totals during the next Worldwide Report Day on November 12, 2014, when we’ll showcase our progress at sites.kiwanis.org/Kiwanis/en/theELIMINATEproject/Progress/WorldwideReportDay.aspx. We’re on the verge of turning a global effort into a worldwide achievement with the strides we’re making toward our US$110 million goal. Help keep the momentum going!

  • Your gifts support SLPs

    When you give to the Kiwanis International Foundation, you support Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs like Key Club and Circle K International. Gifts to our foundation make a difference in your own hometown . . . and in lives a world away. That includes the lives of SLP members. See how.

    At the Kiwanis International Foundation, we believe in supporting our own family. And every year, we work toward making grants to Kiwanis' Service Leadership Programs.

    It’s your help that makes the successes of Key Leader, Aktion Club and Circle K International possible. For instance, grants approved in February 2014:
    • Helped young leaders focus on service leadership as the first.
    • Most meaningful leadership-development experience.
    • Sent adults with disabilities to training conferences.
    • Helped college students make their skills leadership-ready for their bright futures.
    When you give to the Kiwanis International Foundation, you make the Kiwanis family stronger. Give now!
