Community Support Fund

The Kiwanis Club of Winnipeg Inc. has established a Community Support Fund administered by The Winnipeg Foundation which will make annual grants to qualifying and deserving charitable organizations in Winnipeg, essentially displacing the granting activities formerly carried out by The Kiwanis Club of Winnipeg Foundation Inc.  Guidelines and procedures for applicants have been updated to embrace current service mandate of the Kiwanis clubs internationally and to mirror common application protocols of other philanthropic organizations in the community.
