 Rosemead                     Foundations




          Serving the Children of the World




Rosemead Kiwanis, the Cal-Neva-Ha District of Kiwanis International, and Kiwanis International each have parallel philanthropic 501(c)(3) counterpart "Foundations." Each is qualified to receive tax deductible contributions.  Many other Kiwanis Clubs have foundations as well. All are financed by bequests and earnings from past fund raising efforts.  It is these Foundations which technically fund, frequently in concert with others,   our supported K-Family Club groups and programs.


Club dues and receipts, including "happy dollar" amounts and fines, paid by Rosemead Kiwanis members go for administrative costs of the Rosemead Kiwanis Club, including meals, International and District dues, Division assessments, insurance, and supplies. Monies from fundraising activities and donations go to the appropriate Foundation.


The budgets and assets of the Rosemead Kiwanis Foundation and Rosemead Kiwanis Club are totally separate, but both are administered by the Rosemead Kiwanis Board of Directors.  Due to past bequests received and subsequent prudent investment results, Rosemead Kiwanis Foundation grants are presently able to be financed from earnings rather than corpus.
