The Need

Continuing support of each Kiwanian and each Kiwanis Club is vital if the Foundation is to continue it's work with our youth. You can help in several ways:

Tom Duncan Memorial Fund (also known as the Annual Club Gift):  The T-O Foundation annual gift program is named in honor of  former District Governor Tom Duncan.  Although stricken with polio at age 20, Tom showed that handicaps need not deter persons from reaching their goals.


Clubs are asked to donate $10 per member per year based on their September 30 membership.

Clubs that donate $10 per member or a club donation of $500 or more receive special recognition at the annual T-O District Convention.

Lt. Governors whose Divisions with 100% of Clubs that donate at least $5 per member or more, based on the most recent September 30 membership, will receive special recognition at the District Convention.


Clubs are encouraged to send their Annual Gift to the Foundation Office:
