The Need

Continuing support of each Kiwanian and each Kiwanis Club is vital if the Foundation is to continue it's work with our youth. You can help in several ways:


Tom Duncan Memorial Fund:  The T-O Foundation annual gift program is named in honor of a former District Governor.  Although stricken with polio at age 20, Tom showed that handicaps need not deter persons from reaching their goals.

Clubs are asked to donate $5 per member.

Special recognition at DCON of clubs donating $10 per member or a club donation of $500 or more.

Special recognition at DCON of Lt. Governors whose Divisions with 100% of Clubs donation of $5 per member, or more.

C. T. Bush Award:  The award is named after the founder of the Foundation who worked tirelessly for its success. The contributor is recognized with a specially-designed medallion for a $500 gift to the Foundation.

 2014-2015 Report to the District  

The three scholarship programs listed above can actually be tracked by Division.  This report attempts to show what each Division is receiving in benefits from the Foundation in those areas.  There is no way to properly allocate the many other expenses that are incurred from the Foundation for the benefit of the entire district.  Chances are your division is receiving far greater benefits just in scholarships and training than its clubs are contributing to the Foundation.  These results are only for the year 2014-15.  Results change each year because of changes in participation.  If a Division does not have an active youth campaign, then returns will probably be low. 

The Texas-Oklahoma Kiwanis Foundation has no paid employees. Members of the Board of Trustees of the Foundation receive no compensation and pay their own expenses to attend meetings of any type. No Foundation funds are used to reimburse members for personal expenses.  The Foundation does provide a "token" reimbursement to The Texas-Oklahoma Kiwanis District for its use of district personnel, mail, storage and telephone use.
