The purpose of the Steilacoom Kiwanis Funding Request is to support local community and school activities. The intent is to encourage activities that stimulate learning, promote growth, explore new concepts, and facilitate our educators, coaches, and community members to broaden the learning of the children in our communities.
Community and youth groups within Steilacoom, Ketron and Anderson Islands, and DuPont, and any staff member in the Steilacoom Historical School District, individually or in teams, may apply. The project should be a service, activity, item or experience that directly supports the children of our communities and is not entirely supported by other means.
Funding is in three categories:
1) Mini-Grants for the schools in amounts up to $200. (Special requests for Mini- Grants over $200 will be considered on an individual basis and must show that a large number of youth are involved or that the proposal has exceptional merit).
2) Annual activities approved in advance by the Kiwanis Board of Directors and in the yearly budget. Written requests for these activities must be submitted each year.
3) Requests for new activities with detailed justification and sufficient time for review by the Kiwanis Board of Directors and the Kiwanis Foundation Board.
Priority will be given to projects that impact the greatest number of individuals and create an impact beyond the initial use of the grant.
Mini-Grants will be considered on a first come first served basis.
Requests for awards (i.e. cash or gift cards) or staff development cannot be funded.
