Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

Scare up some funds and fun this Halloween by participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. It’s a great opportunity to collect donations instead of candy or to bring club members together for a fabulous event or party. All money collected by Kiwanis-family members through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF will once again support The Eliminate Project and help save moms and babies from maternal and neonatal tetanus.

Did you know? A proud participant in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF since 1994, Key Club has raised more than US$7 million for child survival and development programs around the world—from efforts to eliminate iodine deficiency disorder to HIV/AIDS initiatives in Kenya and Swaziland. Starting in 2012 Key Club joined other Kiwanis Service Leadership Programs to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF to raise money for The Eliminate Project.

How to take part

The process is easy! You can participate in five simple steps:

  1. Decide with your club what kind of fundraiser you’ll do.
  2. Order your collection boxes.
  3. Collect donations.
  4. Fill out the gift form and submit it with your club’s donations.
  5. Celebrate! You’re helping save moms and babies.

Where to send funds

Once you’ve collected all of your donations, send a check or money order (made payable to the Kiwanis Children's Fund) and your completed gift form to:

      Kiwanis Children's Fund
      P.O. Box 6457 - Dept #286
      Indianapolis, IN 46206 USA
      ATTN: Trick-or-Treat

Be sure to include "Trick-or-Treat" and your club number on the memo line of the check.

If your club uses a coin counting kiosk like Coinstar, please send the donations directly to the Kiwanis Children's Fund, not UNICEF USA, so that your club receives credit and donations are applied to The Eliminate Project. 

It’s important to send your check directly to the Kiwanis Children's Fund so we can keep track of all funds raised by Kiwanis-family clubs. This year, the Service Leadership Program goal is to raise more than US$1 million. We need help from you and your club!
