Join us in empowering the next generation of leaders and making a lasting difference in communities around the world. Together, we can achieve extraordinary things. 

Tomorrow Fund 

Your contribution to the Tomorrow Fund empowers CKI clubs to undertake impactful service projects that transform campuses and communities. CKI members utilize Tomorrow Fund grants to organize kid-friendly events, support the homeless and the food-insecure, enhance the environment and much more. 

By investing in the Tomorrow Fund, you help future CKI members make a positive difference in the world. You can contribute directly or recognize an exceptional CKI member through the Carthage-Pullman Society or the Sapphire Circle Honorary Award. 

What is the Tomorrow Fund? 

The Tomorrow Fund is an endowed fund within the Kiwanis Children’s Fund, specifically for CKI. CKI clubs and districts can apply for grants ranging from US$200 to US$2,000 to support service projects that benefit their campuses and communities. To act, identify a service project your club wants to tackle and apply for a grant to fund it.  

How to donate to the Tomorrow Fund? 

You can make a direct donation to the Tomorrow Fund or honor a CKI member with a membership in the Carthage-Pullman Society or the Sapphire Circle Honorary Award.  

Carthage-Pullman Society 

The Carthage-Pullman Society honors Carthage College, the birthplace of CKI, and the Kiwanis Club of Pullman, Washington, U.S., which helped establish the concept of a campus service club. A CKI member can join the society with a US$250 gift or by being honored by a family member, advisor or fellow CKI member. New members receive a medallion, lapel pin and recognition plaque. An additional US$250 gift elevates members to diamond status, with a special lapel pin.  

Sapphire Circle Honorary Award 

The Sapphire Circle Honorary Award recognizes individuals or organizations for their dedication to CKI’s objectives of service and leadership. A gift of US$1,000 or more bestows this honor, recognizing outstanding contributions to CKI, the community or humanity. The sapphire blue color symbolizes unwavering character, and recipients receive a specially designed award. Please note: Individuals cannot nominate themselves.
