Giving Guidelines

MO-ARK Kiwanis 2022-2023 Contributions

Foundations and District Youth Funds

Club Budget – $20.00 Per Member Total

The money for the contributions can be taken from either your service fund or administrative fund.  Some clubs ask members to each give an extra $20.00 each in their dues.  The MO-ARK District requests that you make all these donations in October, November, or December.  By doing this during the first quarter of the Kiwanis year, you get it done and are less likely to forget it.  Also, it makes the funds available early so the Foundations and Service Leadership organizations can plan wise use of the funds.

Send contributions to:


John Buckwalter, 2602 N New St., Kirksville, MO 63501

Each club that contributes $5.00 per member per year receives an Honor Club banner patch and each club that contributes $10.00 or more per member, per year receives a Distinguished Club Certificate.  The contributions must be within the same Earl Collins Foundation fiscal year.  The fiscal year for the Earl Collins Foundation begins on October 1 and ends on September 30 of the following year.  Each club or individual that contributes $1,000 over a four-year period will be recognized as a Fellow Member or Zimmerman Society Member as per their request. Scholarships are given in each Division to worthy seniors for their college tuition.  Consult you Division ECF Trustee for complete information. Find trustee information at (Foundations)


Angie Oshia, 232 Isaiah Ln., Hillsboro, MO 63050

Your club won’t receive a patch or points but every penny goes to help Key Clubs, Circle K Clubs, Key Leader, or Kamp Kiwanis in Missouri and Arkansas.  However, clubs may designate their contribution for other Service Leadership Programs in the District, such as Builders Club or K-Kids, if desired.  These are our youth and worthy of our help.
