Gateway Region Kiwanis Foundation

Gateway Region Kiwanis Foundation


For the benefit and usage of all Kiwanis Clubs in Division 6, 7, 8. and 9 to support the charitable endeavors of Kiwanis International and the Missouri Arkansas District.

In the St. Louis area, Region IV maintains Kiwanis Gateway Foundation as a 501 (c)3. If your club is not 501 (c)3, but a donor requires one, you can arrange for donation to the Gateway Foundation, who will then distribute funds to charities of your choice (for a modest 0.5% service fee, or minimum $1.00). For details contact the current Region IV Trustee.

3.  For the 501(c)3 letter, send along the donor’s business card or name, address, phone number, and email address.
4.  Include the charity to receive the funds with contact information.  The charity must be a 501(3).  Include the charity EIN or IRS Form W-9 if available.  The check will be issued immediately.
