I. GRANTMAKING GUIDELINES Thank you for your interest in the Kiwanis Indiana Foundation (the Foundation). The following information will assist you in determining whether to apply to the Foundation for funding and explain how to proceed if you are eligible to do so. Please review these materials carefully. While the Foundation would like to support all the important work being carried out by Indiana Kiwanians, its financial resources are limited. The information provided through the application process helps the Foundation make sound decisions based on its mission, the directives of donors, and the Foundation s goal to provide effective assistance to as many organizations as possible. II. POLICY STATEMENT FOR GRANTMAKING The objective of the Foundation is to develop a protected pool of capital to generate income, so that the income can be used to energize and nourish endeavors that seek to serve the Objects of Kiwanis. Our grant policies are designed to conform to that overall objective. III. WHO WE FUND The Foundation makes grants to individual Kiwanis clubs and to tax-exempt 501c3 organizations operating or proposing to operate programs for the benefit of Indiana residents within the State of Indiana. IV. WHAT WE FUND The Foundation makes grants to increase the capacity of Indiana District of Kiwanis Clubs, and Indiana District of Kiwanis supported projects, to respond effectively to the needs of the citizens of the state. In general, the Foundation prefers funding for projects that further the Objects of Kiwanis: 1. To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material values of life. 2. To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships. 3. To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.

2 4. To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship. 5. To provide through Kiwanis Clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities. 6. To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism and good will. It is anticipated that projects receiving grants will involve one of the following categories: Youth Elderly Scholarships Civic and community development Education Health and Human Services Historically, the Foundation has funded projects related to supporting children, adults, and the elderly. Legal requirements forbid staff, board members, and their families from profiting financially from any philanthropic grant. All persons actively connected to the Foundation will avoid self-interest in the processing and distribution of grant requests. V. WHAT WE DO NOT FUND The Foundation will not normally consider grants from the Foundation for the following purposes: Individuals other than scholarships (separate applications exist for scholarship programs) Organizations for religious or sectarian purposes Make-up of operating deficits, post-event or after-the-fact situations Endowment campaigns For any propaganda, political or otherwise, attempting to influence legislation or intervene in any political affairs or campaigns. Services such as fire, police, schools, parks, etc. that are the responsibility of government and tax supported. (We will support special projects of these agencies) In addition, the Foundation board is reluctant to 2 approve grants to any organization for the purpose of maintaining an on-going operating budget or for multi-year grant requests. (Please contact the Foundation office before submitting a multi-year grant request). However, exceptions to this may be made at the discretion of the Board. VI. HOW TO APPLY An application may be obtained from the Kiwanis Indiana District office at: 3636 Woodview Trace, Suite #100 Indianapolis, IN Completed typewritten application forms should be sent or delivered to The Foundation s office at 3636 Woodview Trace, Suite #100 Indianapolis, IN Applications cannot be submitted online.

A notice will be placed in the Hoosier Kiwanian, or Hoosier Kiwanis Update, from time to time, notifying all interested organizations that the Foundation will be receiving and considering applications for grants during the months of February and August. informed in writing of the Executive Committee s decision and any conditions placed on the grants such as written progress reports on the projects. Once a grant is received, the Foundation anticipates that the funds shall be expended during the calendar year awarded. In addition, it is appropriate to take the initiative to solicit grant applications or to develop projects coordinated by the Kiwanis Indiana Foundation to address certain community issues that have not been selected by a Kiwanis Club. It may be necessary to solicit a sponsor or sponsors if the need is great and of immediate need. This puts the Kiwanis Foundation in a position of being proactive rather than just reactive. X.
