Giving 4 Kids
The Kiwanis Club of Tacoma Foundation supports:
TERRIFIC KIDS PROGRAMS: Teams of Kiwanis Club of Tacoma members visit ten (7) elementary schools monthly to honor students chosen by their classmates and teachers for caring, helpful and positive models for their fellow students.
SERVICE PROJECTS: The Kiwanis Club of Tacoma projects range from an annual Christmas party for the families at a local homeless shelter, to the refurbishing of a scout camp, to improvements at a local child care center, to providing backpacks for needy kids at the start of the school year. Projects are as unlimited as the minds of our members in finding ways to benefit the children of our community.
KEY CLUB: Key Clubs at Lincoln, Stadium and Mt. Tahoma High Schools are sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Tacoma Foundation and benefit the children of the community through a wide variety of service projects.
KEY CLUB SCHOLARSHIPS: Each year, the Kiwanis Club of Tacoma also offers scholarship opportunities to Key Club members from all three High Schools.
PROJECT ELIMINATE: The Kiwanis Club of Tacoma supports the Kiwanis International project in cooperation with UNICEF, to help eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus in third world countries. Monetary contributions from our foundation help save the lives of countless mothers and babies around the world.
