It’s going to take hard work from all of Kiwanis International to raise the US$110 million needed to save and protect millions of mothers and babies from maternal and neonatal tetanus. And while the focus of The Eliminate Project is outward, it’s nice to get a pat on the back now and then.
Pledges can be made over five years and there are thank-yous for both you and your club along the way. Individual awards start at US$300 raised, and those who give at least US$1,250 become part of the Walter Zeller Fellowship or the Diamond-level Zeller Fellowship. Major gifts of US$25,000 and lead gifts of US$100,000 are honored with medallions, special invitations and recognition in publications and at the Kiwanis International Office. Be sure to ask a foundation staff member how you can combine your foundation giving with that of The Eliminate Project, so you can earn separate Kiwanis International Foundation recognition, too.
Clubs that raise US$100,000 will be named 100K clubs, and a donation of US$750 per member earns Model Club status. Progressive recognition, demonstrated with pins and banner patches, is available for incremental giving increases. The Global Service Society includes clubs in which every member has given generously and there’s also a 100 Percent Participation award.
