Kiwanis District Foundation

​The Wisconsin-Upper Michigan Kiwanis District Foundation, Inc. (“KDF”) is a not-for-profit corporation chartered by the Wisconsin-Upper Michigan District of Kiwanis International in 1983. In 1984, it was recognized as a tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) by the Internal Revenue Service. KDF generally serves as a monetary foundation for the Wisconsin-Upper Michigan District of Kiwanis International and its member clubs. As such, it serves as a fund-raising vehicle for the District and its member clubs.

The KDF Mission is to encourage, promote, and financially assist Kiwanis Clubs and sponsored organizations within the Wisconsin – Upper Michigan Kiwanis District, including development of special projects and activities.

What the KDF Does. The KDF Board of Directors meets at least quarterly to review contributions made, and award Grants, Scholarships and other funds according to its policies. While primarily awarding grant funds to Kiwanis Clubs for worthy projects beyond the typical means of those clubs, KDF funds other grants as well.
