You and your club are excited about participating in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF. Now what? Every great fundraiser requires planning and preparation. Note these key dates.


Early September

Plan your fundraising event. Brainstorm ideas with your club members and ask other Kiwanis-family members to help out.

Need some ideas? Check out our list of fundraising projects to get started.



If your club participated in Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF in 2010 and 2011, you’ll automatically receive 50 Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF boxes at your school in mid-September.

New to the project? No problem! Starting September 15, you can order boxes for your club from the Kiwanis Family Store.


Late September to early October

Spread the word about your event and The Eliminate Project. If you need ideas for how to promote both your event and The Eliminate Project, use the public relations toolkit.


Early November to late December

Halloween’s in the past. Now it’s the season of giving, right?

You have worked hard to raise money for The Eliminate Project. Now’s the time to transform the funds you raised into something good.

Once you have collected all of your donations, send a check (made payable to Kiwanis International Foundation) or money order and a completed gift form to:
The Eliminate Project: Campaign Office
Kiwanis International Foundation
3636 Woodview Trace
Indianapolis, IN 46268

Clubs that raise more than US$250 by December 31, 2012, will receive a special banner patch. So don’t forget to send in the funds you raised by the deadline!
