Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to improving the world one child and one community at a time. Our local club follows this focus and chooses to donate to organizations that assist children in our area. Please note that organizations with missions that are not specifically children focused are still eligible for funding and are encouraged to apply.
The SVKC accepts applications twice a year, in the Spring and Fall, with deadlines of March 15th and July 15th. Grants range from $200 to $500. Any grants under $200 and over $500 may be considered by submitting a letter of request to the Club. A club advocate is recommended for these special situations.
Organizations may receive only one grant per year and must reapply each year for consideration. In the event that a grant is not awarded in the Spring application cycle it will automatically be considered for the Fall cycle.
Our grant application is hosted by the Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge. Please follow the link below to fill our the application. We encourage you to contact us with any questions before applying.
Thank you for all that you do for our community!
