Grants of up to $3,000 to California nonprofit organizations for projects to benefit the local community in eligible locations. Funding is intended for initiatives and programs that advance a cultural or charitable purpose. Preference is given to purposes directly benefiting the San Ramon Valley community. However, the program also permits a small number of the grants to be directed to purposes that can be considered regional, national, and/or international.

Preference is to be given to:

  • Grantees with which Kiwanis Club members are actively associated on a non‐paid basis. 
  • Grants that benefit children, the infirm, or the elderly. 
  • Grants that involve ‘hands-on’ participation by club members, and the community at large. 
  • Grants that will provide solace, comfort, or consolation. 
  • Grants that have a significant influence on the desired results, such as providing seed money, resulting in matching funds, or enabling a program to exist that would not otherwise do so.
