Year-End Giving

by: Bob Wright, President-Elect, CapDist Kiwanis Foundation, December 10, 2021

Are you one of millions of Americans who donate to charity at the end of the year? The holidays of Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa bring out our generosity.

You and/or your Kiwanis Club and its Foundation could choose to support the unique work of our district Kiwanis foundation right now. Anyone can make a personal donation; clubs can recognize someone or make a gift, even its annual gift. How?

Our Capital District Kiwanis Foundation makes donating to help serve children in our 5-state area easy.

Give what is meaningful and affordable—that’s my rule of thumb. What Kiwanis does through service is very important to me, ranking near the top of my donations. I give accordingly.

Decide on your amount. Perhaps be recognized at the foundation’s Life Member ($150), Patron ($300), President’s Circle ($500), Founders Society ($1,000) or Tablet of Honor ($1,250) level.

Want to make your donation all at one time? Print the donation form at and return it with a check to the foundation.

Would you prefer to spread out your donation? Choose sustained giving and donate incremental amounts spread over the next year at Be sure you click the “monthly donation” box—you may change the frequency later in the sign-up process.

Helping to further the cause of Kiwanis—serving children—is a reason to celebrate anytime, and especially so during this joyous season. I can’t think of a better gift this holiday season than helping children through our Capital District Kiwanis Foundation!

A child in need is very deserving indeed. Year-end giving helps our foundation do more and more for them.

May your holidays be merry and bright. May your Capital District Kiwanis Foundation donation be the icing on the cake.
