Kiwanis Foundation of Canada


Committed to Extending a Helping Hand...

The Kiwanis Foundation of Canada Inc. is a nonprofit charitable foundation endorsed and approved in 1971 by the three Kiwanis Districts operating in Canada.
A board of volunteer Kiwanians from these districts governs the Foundation. Its purpose is to provide financial support in many different ways including:

  • Promoting and providing financial support for Service Leadership Programs in all three Districts of Kiwanis in Canada (Pacific Northwest, Western Canada and Eastern Canada and the Caribbean).
  • Promoting and encouraging the presentation of scholarships by Kiwanis Clubs through the Matching Scholarship Program.
  • Collecting funds and administering the National Disaster Relief Fund.
  • Supporting special Kiwanis causes.


The Foundation's funds are received primarily from individual Kiwanis Members and their Clubs in our three Districts of Kiwanis in Canada. Gifts from corporations, other foundations, groups and individuals are also received. All donations shall be used to carry out the Foundation's stated purposes, unless specified as endowment funds.
