  • Seed Grants

    Are you working to start a community action project or program with your friends? Do you need money to put your ideas into action? A $500 Do Something Seed Grant is given out every week to help young people just like YOU! These grants can be used towards project ideas and programs that are just getting started, or to jump-start your program and realize your ideas for the first time. These grants can also be used towards projects that are already developed and sustainable, towards the next steps of your project and organization to help you as you look to expand your project and grow your impact.

  • Get ready to Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF

    Save millions of families—and your teeth—this Halloween when you forgo candy and collect money. From now through 2015, all Kiwanis-family funds raised through Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF will support The Eliminate Project. Each US$1.80 raised will help save or protect one woman and her future babies from MNT.

    The big night is spookily close, only two months away, so plan your fundraiser now. Host a Halloween-themed carnival, a zombie walk, an apple-bobbing contest, horrorfest, pumpkin smash, “Twilight” dance, trunk or treat or even a pumpkin pie baking contest. There are a frightful number of ways to raise money but only if you plan ahead.
    Supplies will be mailed in September to clubs that participated the past two years. If your club name is not on the list, you can order Trick-or-Treat supplies from the Kiwanis-family store after September 6. Contact The Eliminate Project campaign office at +1-317-217-6213 or with questions. A proud participant of Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF since 1994, Key Club and other SLPs have raised nearly US$6 million to help other kids. Happy Trick-or-Treating for UNICEF!
